All About Mumbai Grahak Panchayat!
The Mumbai Grahak Panchayat was established in 1975 to aid customers in making informed decisions and to make them aware of their rights and obligations. With over 33,000 volunteers, it is now India’s largest volunteer organization. The MGP is involved in advocacy for consumer rights and public goods distribution. Additionally, it publishes a monthly magazine for its subscribers that focuses mostly on consumer awareness and rights. The MGP has been a proactive nonprofit organization that has fought for buyer rights. Several of the MGP’s well-known maneuvers are listed below:
With the help of a water cleansing firm, you can overcome ad withdrawal: One of the well-known water purifier companies had to take down an allegedly misleading advertisement that stated that their purifier systems eliminated the COVID-19 virus from personal items like fruit and vegetables.
Refund to airline passengers: The MGP and the Pravasi Legal Cell filed a petition with the Supreme Court requesting that travelers who had their flights canceled due to the COVID-19 outbreak receive a refund of their airfare. The Supreme Court mandated a full refund or granting a “credit score shell” in an amount equal to the fare that was paid.
After 34 years, 800 domestic customers received refunds: The MGP waged a legal battle on behalf of domestic purchasers against the developer of a less costly home development in Virar, where the work was left unfinished and the customers were forced to approach the buyer court, which was represented by the MGP.
