Suggestions on how the State Govt., local self-government and Police can take effective measures against Misleading Advertisements

Misleading advertisements, tricks gullible consumer in purchasing the products and services which are often health hazards or substandard in quality, for example – various pills/food supplements, fairness creams, etc.  The Department of Consumer Affairs, Government of India having its office at New Delhi, would not be able to check the menace of misleading advertisement without the active participation and help from the State Governments, local self-Governments and the Police department of the States. These authorities are expected to intensify their action against the misleading advertisements as also the misleading advertisers on their own or once altered by the voluntary consumer organizations.

\

Suggestions are invited on how the State Govt., local self-government and Police can take effective measures against Misleading Advertisements.

local govt should have single authority to plan execute and be accountable. all state govt departments/ agencies to fall under this authority. Head of this authority should be a elected person and should write the annual report of the department heads of the excuting agencies. Best would be to have elected body in each distict of india and elements of the state govt such as PWD,medical ,education ,police and revenue collection should be under this elected district Govt.

I would like to comment on prevalence of astrology and their false claims. Why in India, when ever they face a problem, they go to Babas instead of Police or Psychologist/ Psychiatrist? There should be a rule to discourage these babas. More number of Psychologist should be promoted.

RTI has been advertised by states to give all information to the public. however in MAharashtra state information commission is giving reply in Marathi though the query has been in english. on enquirying about this they reply that there is directive from the chief minister office to reply only in Marathi. This means in Maharastra RTI is only for Marathi speaking public and not for non Marathi's. Therefore the very purpose of the RTI as claimed by both center and states is getting defeated.

The Government should frequently seek reports from concerned authorities on all anti social activities. Nowadays we see politicians and higher officials in most of all departments are vastly involved in criminal activities. So there should be a high level monitoring cell with a vision. Safety should be given the first priority all sectors.

First of all make self defence sports compulsory for all girls and women of any age and from any walk of life. Mind set of people should be changed towards women and it can be done by education only, therefore gov should work towards making India 100% literate.

Dear Pm Sir

Greeting of The Day
I want to give one suggestion towards State police. As today FIR is entered in System also. Plz ask states to show that on state Police website also so that Status of FIR can be viewed online also. Currently No online ststus is available for FIR Complains. Also make it valid for many administrative purposes like insuranc claim etc so that unproductive work & time will save for public as well as police also

Thanks & Regards
