Misleading advertisements covers all sectors of business across the country. The vulnerable sections of the society living in the backward and rural areas are the worst sufferers. To tackle the menace of misleading advertisements in such areas, the roles of VCOs are perceived to be of great importance. The VCOs working in various parts of the country with their experience in handling consumer related issues may help identifying misleading advertisements and suggest appropriate action to the consumers, State Governments and local self-Governments.

Suggestions are invited on the role of the voluntary consumer organisations in tackling the menace of Misleading Advertisements.

The last date for submission of your comments is 23rd January 2015.

A separate department is required to regulate the jewellery market who fleece the innocent public by charging people of making and wastage charges. There should be a body to assess the entire process of the industry and set standards for the industry so that the innocent (particularly the middle and lower middle class) are not misled and made to pay heavily. The Government should make it mandatory to follow the regulations set by the Govt including the quality of the product.
