About the Programme
Know your legal rights and responsibilities as a consumer and the process of resolving consumer complaint through this three-day certificate course.
Why Join This Course?
Consumer Empowerment is more important than consumer protection. Every consumer needs to have a basic comprehension of the legal rights and responsibilities so as to make an informed decision about purchase of goods and services.
CUTS International defines right to consumer education as “The right to consumer education means the right to acquire the knowledge and skills to be an informed consumer throughout one’s life. The right to consumer education incorporates the right to knowledge and skills needed for taking actions to influence the factors which affect consumer decisions”.
The UN Guidelines on Consumer Protection lays emphasis on consumer education. The guidelines impose an obligation on governments to develop or encourage development of general consumer education and information programmes, bearing in mind the cultural traditions of the people concerned.
This course is designed with the purpose of enhancing consumer education and awareness among the law students and young advocates on the theoretical and practical aspects of consumer protection law.
This course will help you understand who is a consumer in the legal perspective, what is consumer complaint, definition of goods and services, and the various issues that arise in Business-to-Consumer transactions, who can file a consumer complaint and the manner of escalating a consumer complaint.
Consumer confidence primarily involves two convictions – that the consumer will get what he expects and if things go wrong, the consumer can seek a remedy. This course will also help you understand about the grievance redressal agencies in India and the basic procedures involved in filing a complaint, remedies available to a consumer under Consumer Protection Law and other related enactments governing consumer protection.
