Noida: The consumer movement marks 15th March with World Consumer Rights Day every year, as a means of raising global awareness about consumer rights and needs. Celebrating the day is a chance to demand that the rights of all consumers are respected and protected, and to protest against market abuses and social injustices which undermine those rights.
“World Consumer Rights Day was inspired by President John F Kennedy, who sent a special message to the US Congress on 15th March 1962, in which he formally addressed the issue of consumer rights. He was the first world leader to do so. The consumer movement first marked that date in 1983 and now uses the day every year to mobilise action on important issues and campaigns,” informed Dr. Sandeep Marwah President of Marwah Studios and Patron to IFUNA- Indian Federation of United Nations Association in a small meeting at Marwah Studios Film City Noida to make people aware about the day.
Dr. Sandeep Marwah is also serving as the National Chairman of Media & Entertainment Committee of BIS, Ministry of Consumer Affairs, Government of India. He has been working on the upgradation of the complete Industry standards to satisfy consumers of the nation. The event was supported by International Chamber of Media and Entertainment Industry.
