National Consumers Right Day was created in honor of the corresponding law, issued in India in 1986. This is the most important document in any country: it allows you to protect your legal rights when consuming goods and services. The purpose of the holiday is to highlight these interests and tell the population how to behave in a given situation.
So, the Consumer Rights Protection Law was approved by the President of the country. This document is called the Great Map. He instantly expanded the rights of consumers: now the population could not worry about the fraudulent schemes of sellers or dishonesty. The courts of India deal effectively with such matters. Government businesses are also being tested on how they deal with such complaints, whether they try to resolve disputes in an efficient manner or leave the buyer alone with their problem.
In 2019, the Indian Parliament revised the law and put forward an updated version of it. This was due to the growth of the economy, innovation, market competition and the lightning-fast developing service sector. This was the best solution for even greater security and citizen awareness. Every year on the National Day, the most relevant topic is determined and covered throughout the country.
Did you know that:
- India has resources dedicated to such complaints. For example, “Jago Grahak Jago” responds quickly to complaints and works to quickly resolve the dispute;
- a person has the right to demand an environmentally friendly environment for a full life;
- the consumer can find out full information about the product: everything that the seller knows about it;
- the citizen has the right to be protected from harmful goods.
