Right to Information: As a consumer, you have the right to obtain accurate and transparent information about the goods and services you purchase. The Act ensures that businesses provide clear and truthful information regarding the quality, quantity, pricing, safety standards, and terms and conditions of their products or services. This empowers consumers to make informed decisions based on accurate information.

Right to Safety: The Act emphasizes the right to safety, ensuring that consumers are protected from hazardous goods and services. Manufacturers and service providers are responsible for ensuring the safety of their offerings and can be held liable for any harm or injury caused due to defects or negligence. Consumers have the right to seek compensation for damages arising from unsafe products or services.

Right to Choose: Consumer choice is crucial in a competitive marketplace.

If you face any issues with a product or service, you can seek resolution through consumer dispute redressal forums at the district, state, or national level. These forums have the authority to adjudicate disputes, award compensation, and ensure timely resolution.

Right to Consumer Education and Awareness: Empowering consumers through education and awareness is a key aspect of the Act. It encourages consumer organizations, government bodies, and businesses to disseminate information about consumer rights, promote awareness campaigns, and conduct educational programs. This equips consumers with the knowledge to assert their rights effectively and make informed choices.

E-commerce and Online Consumer Protection: The Act recognizes the growing significance of e-commerce and provides specific provisions to safeguard online consumer interests.
