Solution

Rules and regulations are required to safeguard the interest and rights of consumers in the market and to provide them speedy redressal of their grievances. For example, a person
purchases a television set from a shop and it turns out to be defective. The consumer takes the television set to the shopkeeper for repair. The shopkeeper renders sales service by charging Rs 500 as a service charge, while it has been repaired within the warranty period. Thus, rules and regulations are required to protect consumers mainly because of their helpless position and unfair business practices.
