The following methods may be adopted for the protection of consumers.
Business community can itself ensure consumer protection through self-discipline and adopting a code of conduct so as to behave in a more responsible manner. Such code of conduct helps the businessman to avoid government control. Trade associations and chambers of commerce can play a vital role in ensuring that business firms do not exploit consumers.
Consumer associations and Non Consumer organisations (NGOs) can educate and awaken consumers. These bodies can take a united action on behalf of consumers.
The consumer himself must be alert and well informed.
Government has passed certain laws for the sake of consumers’ protection. All the wings of the government-legislature, judiciary and executive can assist in consumer protection.
