World Consumer Rights Day

Posted by at

On March 15, 1962 US President John F. Kennedy gave a speech on consumer rights which led to the creation of the Consumer Bill of Rights. Consumer rights activist Anwar Fazal later proposed the observance of a “World Consumer Rights Day” marking that date, and on 15 March 1983 consumer organizations began observing that date as an occasion to promote basic rights of consumers.

In India we have opportunity to celebrate Consumer Rights Day twice in a year 15 March and 24 December. The day is being observed on 24 December, since the Consumer Protection Act, 1986 was enacted on this day in 1986.
