National Conference on 'State and Market: Balancing Consumer Rights in a Digital Age'. March 15, 2018

The rights of consumers, whether it is having the right to quality education or having access to clean drinking water, are violated on various levels. Moreover, it is quite unfortunate that the consumer has been either excluded from legal frameworks altogether or only partially treated. Due to such a state of affairs, the consumers are more vulnerable to exploitative forces because in the absence of a comprehensive legal arrangement , they can’t find any appropriate forum to get their consumer specific problems addressed. The situation becomes further complicated as more and more people are extensively relying on the Internet, raising questions on which online sources consumers can trust and what happens to the information they share online. This year’s conference therefore aims to enlighten the consumer with their basic rights and the need for them to be practiced.
