Kolkata: The Bengal Government is giving serious consideration to the introduction of an understanding of consumer protection in the undergraduate college syllabus.
This was recently announced by the Consumer Affairs Minister during a programme to raise awareness on the issue at Netaji Indoor Stadium, Kolkata.
The decision is being considered, according to the Minister, keeping in view the huge number of people coming forward with queries at the consumer protection fairs organised by his Department across the State.
Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee has made consumer protection one of the major issues of governance that needs to be highlighted, and in line with that, the Department has done exemplary work during the seven years of the Trinamool Congress Government.
According an official, the consumer affairs courts are also doing a lot of good work, something that is being increasingly appreciated by the people.
