The consumer rights organisation, Amity International Monday stressed the need for establishing consumer courts in Sindh as the similar courts are operating in other provinces.
Amity International Pakistan’s President and Member Sindh Assembly, Dr. Mehfooz Yar Khan Advocate told a news conference here on Monday that despite the passage of Sindh Consumer Protection Act 2014 on February, 20, 2015 consumer courts have not been set up in the province as yet.
Contrary to this, consumer courts were operating in three other provinces and Islamabad, he added. Mehfooz Yar urged the authorities concerned to ensure the enforcement of
Sindh Food Authority law and setting up of consumer courts to facilitate the people of Karachi and rest of the province on the eve of World Consumer
Rights Day which is observed on March 15. He stressed that consumer courts were established across the world for protecting consumer rights. He said such courts would help curb sale of substandard items and provide a platform to consumers to lodge their complaints to protect their rights.
