significant development in this branch of law. Globalization, market-dominated economy, information revolution
and development of consumer consciousness to ensure maximum value for money are all responsible for the

Protection Act to ensure consumer justice. The Course is designed to provide an overview of Consumer Protection
Act along with information about the consumer forums created for speedy and efficacious resolution of consumer
