Celebrities have stiff penalties with CP Bill

Celebrity endorsers will now face stiff fines for appearing in misleading ads. The Consumer Protection Bill 2019, passed by the Lok Sabha, imposes a penalty of up to ₹10 lakh on first-time offenders, going up to ₹50 lakh for subsequent offences. They can also be barred from ads for up to a year, and up to three years for future lapses. But endorsers won’t be liable if they can prove that they verified the ad’s claims. The bill also clamps down on manufacturers making false promises, with fines of up to ₹50 lakh and imprisonment up to five years.

Attached is full bill. all members should study and we should discuss how best Government should enforce this. more

Let us wait and watch for one year and see if any personality has been punished.Because we make so many laws but their implementation is very poor.We solely depend on some body reporting and after that legal process start and the end result every body knows."Due to lack of Evidence there is no case" that too after couple of years of legal battle. more  
Such ads like Kesh king by Juhi Chawala,saying new hair growth or providing nourishment to hair to prevent hair loss,Another one by Vidya Balan for hem Pushpa helps woment in their UNDINOME meaning during their menstrual cycle provide relief,Nav Ratna tel by Amitabh n Sharukh all these r tall claims more
