Awareness on Consumer Protection Act

Now a day’s bulk number of people are being duped and cheated by the traders. Some trades are marketing goods, which are hazardous to life and property.  Some are selling the goods more than the maximum retail price and some are issuing bogus warranty or guarantee cards. All these misdeeds are happening due to lack of Knowledge on consumers protection act, 1986. Our organization aimed to improve knowledge on Consumer Protection act with the help of local lawyers and Police in five Mandals of Guntur District namely Chilakaluripet, Narasaraopet, Bapatla, Vinukonda and Repalli in the year 2012-13.

The people were enlightened about consumer protection Act 1986, district forum, state commission, national commission, ISI Agmark etc. A good number of people got benefitted with this programme. A part from this, we conducted rallies on December 24th 2012 at the above said five mandals on the eve of National Consumers Day.
