The Punjab Consumer Protection Act 2005
Unfortunately only few people know about their rights as consumer in Pakistan. In Punjab there are proper consumer protection laws in place and also consumer courts are working to save the consumer from seller or manufacturer. Punjab Consumer Protection Act 2005 is for the protection and promotion of the rights and interests of consumers. It also provides speedy redress of consumer complaints and for the all other related matters.
So if someone sells you a faulty shoe, substandard machine, bad food or anything else you can file a suit against such shopkeeper in the consumer court and make up for your loss. Consumer laws in Pakistan and especially in Punjab are blessing for the ordinary consumers but we need to spread the awareness among the people about that law.
