Consumers have the right to get their claims settled in their favor in case of being cheated and exploited by the producers. Under the Consumer Protection Act 1986, a three-tier judicial system has been formed. This act provides the establishment of consumer disputes redressal agencies at the district, state, and national levels. Consumers can invoke their right to redressal and right to represent.
