‘Verify quality of products before buying’

B.L. Pravinkumar, Deputy Commissioner (in-charge), underlined the need for consumers to verify the quality of products before purchasing them.
Speaking after inaugurating the workshop on consumer awareness, organised by the district administration, the district consumer grievance redressal forum, and Karuna Development Society here on Tuesday, Mr. Kumar said that as per the law, it was the duty of producers to manufacture and supply quality products. Yet, consumers should accord priority to verify the quality of products before purchasing them. Forums were established to protect consumers from being duped and to redress their grievance in case the product was of inferior quality.
He also stressed the need for the consumers to give up the tendency of tolerating injustice and inculcate the attitude of fighting for their rights by having a proper understanding of consumer protection laws in force.
Vasant Prema, Deputy Director Women and Child Development; H.D. Ekta, president of the forum; and M. Hanumanth Rao, advocate, spoke on consumer protection Acts and the various orders passed in favour of consumers. Savitri Mujumdar, advocate, spoke on the role of women in consumer awareness movement, while Umesh of Food Safety and quality Authority, spoke on adulteration and the penal laws against it.
