World Consumer Rights day – Varanasi Tours
The Second Online Travel, Varanasi, Aktha, Uttar Pradesh, India
World Consumer Rights Day is celebrated every year on March 15. The day is observed to raise awareness about a consumer’s rights and needs to enable the consumer to fight against social injustices. The World Consumer Rights Day 2021 theme is gathering all the consumers to fight “Tackle Plastic Pollution”.
The consumer movement in India started in 1966 from Maharashtra. After establishing the Grahak Panchayat in Pune in 1974, institutions for consumer welfare were formed in many states, and this movement continued to grow. On December 9 1986, the Consumer Protection Bill was passed on the initiative of the then Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi and came into force nationwide after the President’s signature. Last year, on July 20, an amendment in this law made customers more empowered and competent.
The Central Government has made several significant changes to the Consumer Protection Act. After enacting the new consumer law, the accountability of companies and artists who advertise for them has become more than ever. The government has also included e-commerce companies under the Consumer Protection Act, 2019 (Consumer Protection Act, 2019).
Consumer right in India-
- Can file complaint anywhere
Under the new rule, consumers can now file a complaint in any commission. Earlier, the case used to be registered only where the goods manufacturing company’s office was situated.
- Celebrities accountable too
Now, the provision of punishment and fine has also been applied to celebrities for misleading advertisements. In such a situation, celebrities now choose advertisements after thinking very carefully.
It takes honesty and gentleness to make a consumer happy. Practice it more challenging every time for tremendous success. Happy world consumer rights day.
