Four brochures released to empower consumers
To empower consumers of the state, CERC, in partnership with the Ministry of Consumer Affairs, Government of Gujarat has released four brochures in Gujarati. This is the first time such an initiative has been taken by a consumer organisation in the state.
Very often, consumers feel helpless and do not know how to redress their grievances regarding credit/debit card fraud, harassment on social media platforms, misleading advertisements that lure them to buy products/services and errors in electricity billing.
The many complaints received in these areas prompted us to bring out the following handy, easy to understand and visually appealing brochures: (i) How to shop safely and successfully online: (ii) Beware of cyber crime (iii) Protest against misleading advertisements and (iv) Rights of electricity consumers. CERC has printed 60,000 brochures in all and will be distributing them to the leading voluntary consumer organisations (VCOs) located across Gujarat.
