Consumer law pertains to the legal provisions designed to protect the rights of the consumers. These laws have developed over the years as a body of consumer rights in order to address the unfair practices, dishonest claims and unjust tactics used by the producer of goods and provider of services.

    • Monopolies and Restrictive Trade Practices Act, 1969 and
    • The Prevention of Food Adulteration Act, 1954.
    • The Consumer Protection Act, 1986.

    The Consumer Protection Act, 1986 has become a remedy for consumers throughout the nation and is a standout amongst other important legislations endorsed for the benefit of the consumers.The complete act circles around the complaint, the complainant, defects in goods in question and removal of the defects or replacement of the goods with new goods of similar description etc. Thus, enabling to protect the interests of the consumer. The act encompasses a three-tier system District Forum, the State Commission and the National Commission for the redressal of grievances of consumers.

    The Consumer Protection Act 1986 is the Magna Carta for consumer protection drafted so well and the definitions laid in the act are of a very strong nature. One such definition is of who is a Consumer under Section 2(1)(d) that in simple term means:

    • anyone who has purchased any goods or services for self-use after consideration;
    • anyone who acquires goods for self-employment;
    • anyone who uses such goods or services with the permission of the buyer;
    • who obtains goods or avail services on deferred payment basis;

    Therefore, people who buy goods for commercial purpose are not taken to be as consumers.

    Common steps that are taken by the best lawyers for consumer disputes in Chandigarh:

    At first, a Notice is drafted and sent to the other party. Thereafter, a complaint is drafted laying down a brief list of dates and events along with the main facts with respect to the transactions and the deficiency in service caused. After the complaint case is completely drafted, true copies of the documents are annexed (including the bank statements, if any and receipts) and the affidavits are signed by the complainant. Now when it comes to filling of the case at the Punjab State Consumer Disputes Redressal Commission, there are some other formalities that need attention:

    • A court fee in form of postal order or a demand draft is to be attached
    • A court fee/stamp duty on Power of attorney.
    • 4 sets of the complete consumer complaint,

    Finally, the filling can be done at the consumer dispute redressal commission office to the assigned authority.

This legislation provides a platform for protecting consumers against exploitation, for the hearing of complaints and for settlement/compensation of dispute. The Act also stipulates the responsibilities of goods and services provider.
