Need of Consumer Protection Act, 1986 in developing countries like India
- POVERTY AND UNEMPLOYMENT: – In developing countries, most of the customers are poor and unemployed. They accept anything which is offered to them at a low price. The poor consumers are the most harassed and the most helpless creature in India.
- ILLITERATE CONSUMER: – In developing countries like India most of the consumers are uneducated and illiterate. They cannot differentiate between pure and adulterated products. Consumers cannot read the contents, date, price, quantity, etc. So they really blindly on the information of the suppliers.
- CONSUMERS ARE NOT ORGANISED: – Another reason for more requirement of consumer protection in India is that in India consumers have not yet organized themselves to have a powerful consumer movement. They are a lack of effective agencies to secure the redressal of their grievances.
