What is the role of consumer forums?

Answer:
The consumer movement in India has led to the formation of various organisations known as ‘Consumer Forums’ or ‘Consumer Protection Councils’.

  • They guide consumers on how to file cases in the consumer court.
  • On many occasions, they also represent individual consumers in the consumer courts.
  • These voluntary organisations also receive financial support from the government for creating awareness among the people.
