Consumer protection and consumerism in India have undergone significant changes in recent years, with the aim of strengthening consumer rights and addressing emerging challenges. Several developments in law and practice have shaped these changing contours. The most notable change in consumer protection in India was the enactment of the Consumer Protection Act, 2019, which replaced the outdated Consumer Protection Act of 1986. The new law aims to provide enhanced protection to consumers and introduces several important provisions. It establishes the Central Consumer Protection Authority (CCPA) to regulate matters related to unfair trade practices, misleading advertisements, and product liability.
