Give reasons to support your answer.
A consumer should be aware of his rights and should discharge his responsibilities like a good citizen. Thus when he is alert he is always safe. To show his alertness, he must perform the following responsibilities:
- Quality Conscious—He must be quality conscious so that the problems of adulteration, defective goods, and spurious goods are eradicated.
- Not to be Misled by False Advertisements—Sometimes, advertisements are fraudulent or exaggerate facts. The consumers should not be misled by such fraudulent advertisements.
- Obtain Cash Memo—A consumer should insist on obtaining a cash memo while buying goods and services. It is the proof of purchase and is required for lodging a complaint against the seller.
