Citizen Consumer Club

Coordinators : Dr. M.G. PRASANNA VANITHA & Dr. R. GOPI

Introduction

People buy a variety of goods and services for their day-to-day activities. A person pays for what he wants to purchase and hopes to be satisfied with its consumption and use.This satisfaction cannot be ensured with the products that are bought. This may be caused due to the poor quality of a product, overcharging a product, lower quantity of contents and misleading advertisements. Malpractice can be averted with the concept and practice of consumer protection that highlights the rights and responsibilities of consumers including the legal provisions and mechanism for settlement of consumer grievances.

Objectives
