World Consumer Rights Day is celebrated on March 15 annually as a means of raising global awareness about consumer rights and needs. On this day, the governments around the globe spread awareness about consumers’ rights and needs.
The day also aims to draw attention to market malpractices, which undermine the rights of consumers and what more can be done to empower buyers.
The global theme for this year is “Fair Digital Finance”.
In India, the government passed the Consumer Protection Act, 1986 that outlines some basic consumer rights.
