Description
The enactment of the Consumer Protection Act is regarded as 'magna carta' in the field of consumer protection for checking the unfair trade practices and deficiency in goods and services. The importance of the Act lies in promoting welfare of the society by enabling the consumer to participate directly in the market economy. The Indian Parliament enacted the Consumer Protection Act, 2019 on 9 August 2019, which came into effect from 20th July, 2020 repealing the Consumer  protection Act, 1986, to provide for timely and effective administration and settlement of consumers' disputes. While retaining certain old provisions, the New Act has some new provisions like e-commerce, establishment of Central Consumer Protection Authority (CCPA), strict norms for misleading advertisement, strict norms for product liability, alternate dispute resolution through mediation, to further safeguard consumer rights and create exhaustive consumer protection law. As per the Act, the expression 'buy any goods' and 'hires or avails any services' includes offline or online transactions through electronic means or by teleshopping or direct selling or multi-level marketing. With arduous industry, dedication and devotion, an earnest attempt has been made by the authors to undertake extensive research on various provisions of the enactment and its effectiveness in dealing with cyber crimes. Five editions of the 'Commentary on the Consumer Protection Act, 1986' by the authors received overwhelming response from the bench, bar and all those who have to deal with this legislation and the reviews of the book bear testimony that the book enjoyed the reputation of a standard and reliable commentary on the subject.
