The three factors which gave birth to the “ Consumer Movement in India” are :

  2. The need to create  awareness among the consumers and the sellers that it is the responsibility of the seller to ensure quality of goods and services.

  3. Also rampant food shortages, unfair and unethical trade practices like hoarding and black-marketing, adulteration of food gave birth to Consumer Movement in India.
