District Consumer Protection Council Gujranwala: An Analysis of its Performance
All provinces in Pakistan, including Islamabad, have their own consumer protection laws. All of these laws contain provisions for the establishment of consumer protection councils. The main purpose of these consumer protection councils is to protect the consumer from the machinations of manufacturers, traders, dealers and retailers. These consumer protection councils are functioning in seventeen districts of Punjab province. Gujranwala is one of the seventeen districts where the consumer protection council has been formed. This study evaluates the performance of District Consumer Protection council Gujranwala and finds the fact that the performance of this council has been satisfactory. But very small fines are imposed which need to be increased so that people think ten times while violating.
