NGO in Kolkata : NGO Working On Consumer Rights & Protection in West Bengal by Bharatiya Jana Seva Mission .
As variety of products have flooded the market. There are also a number of services including insurance, transport, banking, etc. Companies spend a lot of money on advertising their products through television, newspapers and magazines. The consumers get confused and do not know the real information he needs about the product. Need that consumer should be aware of not only the commercial aspects but of the health and-safety aspects also. To make the consumers aware about the precautions that they should take before buying anything from the market a consumer awareness camp program was initiated.
We have organized Consumers Awareness programme at different parts of North 24 Pngs district with & without grant of Govt. Consyumers Department . The overall objectives of the Consumers Awareness programme were to raise consumer awareness at the grassroots by strengthening the capacity of net-workers in West Bengal ; and build a strong consumer movement at the grassroots level in West Bengal. The programme was participatory in nature and the participants took keen interest in the discussions and deliberations.
