Kolkata: The Government has been organising consumer awareness fairs every year. The fair in Kolkata for 2018 is inaugurated on Tuesday and will continue for three days.
The areas range from telecom, electricity, banking and insurance to food adulteration and metrology, among others. Seminars would be held every afternoon. In the evenings, cultural programmes would add entertainment value to the event.
The Bengal Government under Trinamool Congress has always recognised the need for the protection of consumers’ rights, and has fulfilled its obligations in terms of formulating and enforcing laws and holding awareness campaigns.
The fair would begin at 12 PM and continue till 9 PM on each day. Stalls would be set up from where those attending would get to know about consumer rights, the areas where complaints can be lodged, how to lodge complaints and the procedure for redressal.
