Description
Introduction to the Law of Torts and Consumer Protection is a text-material for guidance in this fascinating branch of law. The book contains concepts of law of torts, studded with a large number of illustrative cases to induce easy grasp and understanding. The book has been conceived and brought forth for guidance of students and also for any member of the general public who is interested in having a casual acquaintance with this interesting branch of law. It is a remedial subject. The courts are ready to mould it to provide remedy to any injured person particularly where there is no statutory coverage. It is one subject which is approximating the law to the legal ideal that wherever there is a wrong there must be a remedy. Every injured person is looking for a remedy and if his injury remains unredressed, it would seem to him that the whole colossal legal system is a failure. Nothing is capable of bringing about more social satisfaction and thereby promoting more general public happiness than the care shown to aggrieved persons. The Law of Torts being a general caretaker of social wrongs, its knowledge is important not only to students, but also to general public. To this field of social protection law, another important piece of social legislation has been added, which is known as Consumer Protection Act. Buyers enjoy some protection under the Sale of Goods Act, 1930 but the Act is confined to goods only and does not extend to services. The Consumer Protection Act covers both the fields of consumption and the newly enacted Consumer Protection Act, 2019 has broadened the definition of 'consumer' to include buying any goods or hiring of any services through offline or online transactions.
