CONSUMER ADVISORIES CONSUMER PROTECTION ACT 1986 (AMENDED )2002

Reserve Bank of India by issuing various circulars regarding online banking and money transfer activities have made consumers capable of securing the online space. It’s true that as a whole, there are no specific laws that seek to protect consumers in the online space.

While looking into the present frame work of Consumer Protection Act, we find enough scope to make use of this law with the same strength as is done purchases in physical presence with a little careful dealing....

The issue was then set right by this judgement; consumer courts got more teeth thereafter. Once again the similar question is raised by one Surinder Mohan Arora challenging the authority of the National commission and the regulation framed under section 30A of the Act....
