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.
