Â Â Â Â Â Â Â This is in ref to your mail regarding misleadingÂ ads . I agree there should be heavy penality to both the manufactrersÂ andÂ celebraty of ads for misleading ads. To day we have two issues in products manufactured in India andÂ of other countries i.e. QUALITY & RELIABILITY. India being a cost sensitive market we go by price and not by quality . Standards are not mandatery . HenceÂ the tendency of the manufacturers is to secrifice engineering standards /use poor quality materials in manufacturingÂ and make the product more and moreÂ cheaper. . As standards are not mandatory low quality products from other countries are also dumped in India. This being the case the manufacturers to sell their products give misleading ads to sell their products.
If ads willÂ be regulated by a govt body in my view , we will open an inspecter raj in theÂ country. My suggestions is to tackle at the manufacturing stage for manufacturing high standard and rich specification productsÂ Â :-
1.Â Introduction ofÂ a libility clause and takeback policy in manufacturing:Â 2Â Â MakeÂ benchmark quality standards of productsÂ mandatory.both for products manufactured in India and from ther countries as well3.Â Self certification by the manufactures/ tradersÂ adhearing to quality standardsÂ before sale in the market.4.Â make a product directory of all such products giving specification / price etc and place in public domain for the consumers to select their produts
With quality products available the local brands will also go to global market and become global brand as desired by the Hon'ble PM.
May I request you to take up at appropriate level for enacting law on above . I have sent suggestion to PMO on the above for consideration.

Regarding misleading advertisements, DoCA does nothing despite the fact that there is an Advertising Council of India floated by the Industries for receiving and settling consumers' complaints against fake, misleading and other such advertisements. We used to receive the details of settled cases with fines imposed. But now for a long time, there has been no news. No news means as a perpetual good news. more
