About the Quiz Competition
The Consumer Protection Act, 2019 came into effect in August 2019. It has repealed and completely overhauled the Consumer Protection Act, 1986 with the objective to provide timely and effective administration and settlement of consumer disputes.
Consumer protection laws represent one of the most critical components of the market architecture of the economy with a wide range of stakeholders. It is essential that the students of law, commerce, management, and all other streams understand the nuances of this specialised subject through both education and training in this field.

The objective is to provide an opportunity and a conducive platform to students from various universities to expand, explore and develop their knowledge of consumer laws through the medium of a National Quiz.
