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

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.

Dear Sir, please make it accessible online ... it's very easy & would prove to be most effective, something like BBB in USA/Canada ... award those merchants who resolve consumer grievance & punish those who ridicule poor consumers

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.

To protect consumer rights process of filing complaint and resolution needs a drastic improvement.
Strict guidelines should be made to resolve cases under minimum time period
A separate department is needed that can act within 24 Hours of consumer grievance and help consumer to file complaint.
Review from consumers should also be taken regarding these departments.
And suo moto investigation should be taken up by government agencies to help consumer get redressal even in complex cases

Call Centers call the persons and give their false identification and try to cheat the people. They do ask account numbers, Addresses, References which must be STOPPED. To be precise I am quoting such calls from these numbers +911408930020, +911409305042, +911409964001, +911416551911 as an example. There might be lot of numbers from where innocent people might be cheated.
My request that a system should be displayed for their identification in a prerecorded voice. All talks to be recorded

Like a movie sensor board or TRAI why not implement Advertisement regulatory terms and conditions. But one thin movie sesor board I am not sure whether it is working properly or not . Since these days movies are very bad. Similaly traffice police can get the vehicle or heavy fine for Polluted vehicle. The vehicle which is not given for maintenance gives this pollution and cities are getting polluted and causing cancer. Similalry becuase of smokers others also getting cencer. This rules followed
