Ali, who also holds the portfolio of food civil supplies and consumer affairs, told the Assembly that many steps have been taken to strengthen the Consumer Protection Act (CPA), 1987 like reconstitution of state consumer protection council, district consumer protection councils and designation of state consumer dispute redressal commission as State Food Commission (SFC).
“The state government intends to amend the CPA in order to make it more stringent and consumer friendly, besides reviewing other acts under the ambit of the department,” he said.
