Interactive Session on Consumer Protection Act, 2019 - Aug 05, 2020

The Consumer Protection Act,2019 came into force on 20th July 2020. All the provisions have been now notified. CPA 2019 is expected to be a Game Changer legislation. With the provisions relating to E-Commerce, Product Liabilities, Class Action, Unfair Contracts and Celebrity Endorsement introduced in the legislation for the first time in India, the CPA 2019 will force all types manufacturers, service providers, dealers, distributors, advertisers, celebrities who deal with Consumers to change the way they do business. With Class Action, Penalties for Misleading Advertisements, Penalties for Celebrity Endorsements and enhanced consequences for Unfair Trade Practice, Defective Products and Deficient Services, the CPA has probably tilted the legal balance in favour of the Consumer. Not only substantive and penal provisions have now undergone a change but the redressal mechanism has pivoted in favour of the Consumer and the CPA 2019 has created additional authority in Central Consumer Protection Authority, with its in-house machinery to investigate, to safeguard the rights of consumers from unfair trade practices or misleading advertisements. Much publicised E-Commerce Rules not only pave way for additional information about the country of origin but now lends legitimacy to E-Commerce Platforms who conducted business ethically and have been FDI compliant. The redressal provisions in the nature of convenient forum choice, electronic filing, ADR/ mediation choice at all levels, higher pecuniary jurisdiction, will not only reduce the pressure on Consumer District Forums but also pave way for expeditious settlement or adjudication of cases.
