About the Workshop
Unless you happen to live under a rock, it’s pretty safe to assume that you, my friend, are a consumer.
The marketing mantra dictates that the customer is queen. Yet, up until now, our laws operated on the ‘caveat emptor’ principle which cautioned the buyer against deception, faulty goods & poor services while expecting the consumer to be responsible.
As all kinds of goods & services are now just a click away, it has dawned on the law-making bodies that in the interest of fair play & equity, it should be the responsibility of the traders, sellers & service providers not to dupe or mislead the customers.
The latest amendments in the Consumer Laws governing the country operate on the “Caveat Venditor” principle which shifts the onus onto the seller.
About time we called a spade a spade and held that uber-cute website responsible for letting you believe that it’ll adorn your feet with those beautiful boots this winter when all you received was a pair of randomly glued patches of poor quality leather resembling shoes (from a certain angle) that just won’t fit! Yes, it is heartbreaking. No, it is not your fault. Yes, we have a grievance redressal mechanism in place that could do you justice.
Join us as we navigate through the Consumer Protection (Amendment) Act, 2019 & understand how the face of consumer litigation will transform in the coming days, how it will impact you, the corporations and other stakeholders in the digital era we seem to have stumbled upon.
