Dear Members, I have created a circle titled "safeguarding against Misleading Advertisements".
It has always been a trend of the business houses to mislead the consumers. The company offers attractive schemes which practically do not exist. The best way to protect the consumers from such misleading schemes and advertisement is to disseminate the information in safeguarding the interest of consumers. This circle is being proposed to work in that direction and bring out the such misleading schemes and advertisements before the members. I hope you would like the circle and contribute to the cause. more

The most misleading advertisements and publicity are more on cosmetic goods, toiletries, health supplements, resort selling, real estate selling, life, health, general insurance, Mutual Funds (Advertisements & Advisers do not tell negative points), oils for removing baldness or regrowth of hairs, Astrology, Palmistry, Numerology, Gemology, Costly- suiting, shirting, ladies garments, children garment, Hospitals facilities & treatments including costly dental & cosmetic treatments, frames of spectacles, costly shoes, sleepers, chappals, sandles, over the counter (OTC) goods. The middle and senior middle class should carefully evaluate with their equivalent goods and services and go for less costly products/services from reasonably good companies

The Central, State and Local Governments & their concerned departments should check such misleading advertisements, publicity, products and services and on complaints from customers and after inquiry, if found true whether of product quality and/or after sales services, blacklist/ban their such products/services including their brand ambassadors. more  
Is good and appreciable more  
Dear Shri Walia Ji, Your commentts have alwayz been encouraging. Thanks and regards more  
Mr.S.K.Virmani has already made various efforts otherwise.
If you kindly raise your voices , it is our moral duty and selfish interest to support you and your efforts for the betterment and safe guard us from damages, being faced by the innocent customers, due to misleading advertisements. more  
Dear Shri Satya Pal Ji, Thanks for your comments. The purpose of the circle was itself to take up issues with the concerned authorities and couple of issues have already been taken up and got addressed with instructions to withdraw those advertisement and issue corrective advertisement. The issue of corrective advertisement is not the solution as much damage already take place in the original misleading advertisement. Much would depend upon the interest and feedback received from the members. But this is my assurance to take forward the issues at appropriate forums. Even if the concerned authorities does not take action due to some vested interest, I plan to counteract the same with bringing up the issues before public in as many number as possible as an awareness and advisories. Till date not much response has been received as there are very few members who have joined the circle. more
