Central Consumer Protection Authority takes strong action on violations of ‘country of origin’ on e-commerce platforms

Ministry of Consumer Affairs:

The Central Consumer Protection Authority (CCPA) under Department of Consumer Affairs, Ministry of Consumer Affairs, Food and Public Distribution has taken strong action on violations of consumer rights.

In a run-up to the festive season, CCPA took stringent action to safeguard consumer interests.

In a press conference here today, Secretary Department of Consumer Affairs, Ms. Leena Nandan shared how CCPA has been efficiently and effectively tightening noose over the violators.

The violations involve declaring false country of origin on the products listed on e-commerce platforms and failure to declare country of origin. CCPA has taken suo-moto cognizance of the matter on the basis of complaints received from numerous consumers on the National Consumer Helpline portal.

Rule 6(5)(d) of the Consumer Protection (E-commerce) Rules, 2020 mandate any seller offering goods or services through a  marketplace e-commerce entity to provide all relevant details about the goods and services offered for sale by the seller including  country of origin, necessary  for  enabling  the  consumer  to  make  an  informed  decision  at  the  pre-purchase stage.

Rule 4(3) further stipulates that no  e-commerce  entity  shall  adopt  any  unfair  trade  practice,  whether  in  the  course  of  business  on  its platform or otherwise.

CCPA has sent Notice to e-commerce entities for violations reported on their platforms. CCPA has directed such entities to furnish detailed reply as to what are the tangible steps have been taken by them on this matter.

Since LM (Packaged Commodity) Rules also mandate declaration of country of origin on e-commerce platforms, CCPA is also working in coordination with the Legal Metrology Department for necessary action under the Legal Metrology Act.

Thus, 202 notices with regard to country of origin violations in the period 16.10.20 to 22.10.21. Out of this, electronic products recorded the highest violations with 47 notices, followed by apparel with 35 notices.

75 companies have compounded their offences, out of which 68 have compounded for violations relating to country of origin. The total amount collected by compounding of the offences is ₹41,85,500.

CCPA is continually monitoring the e-commerce landscape in India to take immediate cognizance of violations under the Consumer Protection Act and the E-Commerce Rules, 2020

The NaMo App has a very interesting section known as ‘Kamal Pushp’ that gives you the opportunity to share and know about inspiring Party Karyakartas: PM Narendra Modi

PM Narendra Modi:

With the blessings of the people, BJP has got the opportunity to serve across several states and at the Centre.

A key reason behind this trust of people is the stellar role played by generations of Karyakartas who have devoted their lives to the Party and nation building.

The NaMo App has a very interesting section known as ‘Kamal Pushp’ that gives you the opportunity to share and know about inspiring Party Karyakartas from the Jana Sangh days to the present, who toiled to popularise our ideology.

We must fight the diabolical campaign of BJP/RSS ideologically. We must do so with conviction and expose their lies before the people if we are to win this battle : Sonia Gandhi

Opening Remarks of Congress President Sonia Gandhi at the Meeting of General Secretaries, In-charges & PCC Presidents, to discuss INC membership program, Jan Jagran Abhiyan & upcoming elections :


General Secretaries and In-Charges, PCC Presidents and friends,You are all well aware of the CWC Meeting we had a few days back. I am sure you have read the three resolutions passed by the CWC and that they have been communicated and dis-tributed in your states. Today’s get-together is a follow-up to that meeting.


The detailed schedule for full-fledged organisational elections is already with you. The nation-wide Congress membership enrolment programme begins on November 10, 2021, and runs through till March 310, 2022.


I take this opportunity to emphasise to each one of the PCC Presidents, General Secretaries and In-Charges that new members are the lifeblood of any political movement. Young men and women across the nation seek a movement to give voice to their aspirations. It is our duty to provide them with a platform, as we have done for generations past.


You will have to ensure the proper printing and distribution of forms for every ward and village. You will have to identify and assign Congress leaders and office bearers, the task of going house to house, to enrol members in a transparent fashion. You must ensure the clear delin-eation of the responsibilities of these individuals at the state, district, block, ward and village level. This is a vital responsibility that you are entrusted with.


Training programmes for our workers are therefore an absolute necessity. You have received a circular from the AICC with regard to the organisation of such programmes at every level. I want to emphasise that you should take it on priority. The fight to defend our democracy, our Constitution and the Congress Party’s ideology begins with being fully prepared to identify and counter false propaganda.


We must fight the diabolical campaign of BJP/RSS ideologically. We must do so with conviction and expose their lies before the people if we are to win this battle.

The AICC releases important and detailed statements almost every day on issues facing the nation. But it is my experience that they do not percolate down to our grass root cadres at the block and district level. There are policy issues on which I find a lack of clarity and cohesion even amongst our state-level leaders.


You must train our workers to take on the unceasing onslaught of malicious disinformation campaigns at the behest of the BJP/RSS. And you must train our people to fight it while upholding and projecting the core Congress ideology.


Our own history bears witness to the fact that if an organisation is to succeed against injustice and inequality, if it is to effectively champion the rights of the marginalised, it must become a widespread agitation down to the grassroots.

The Modi Government has sought to erode our institutions so it may evade accountability. It has sought to undermine the core values of our Constitution so it can hold itself to a lower standard. It has questioned the very fundamentals of our democracy.


We must redouble our fight for those who are the victims of this government’s worst ex-cesses: our farmers and farm labourers, our youth fighting for jobs and opportunities, small and medium scale businesses, our brothers, our sisters with particular focus on the deprived.


To make this promise truly meaningful, we must also make our organisation more representa-tive of this cross-section of society.


Five states are going to election in the coming months. Congress party workers and leaders in these states are gearing up to take on these battles. Our campaign must be founded upon concrete policies and programmes emanating from widespread discussions with all sections of society.

Finally, I would like to re-emphasise the paramount need for discipline and unity. What should matter to each and every one of us is the strengthening of the organisation. This must override personal ambitions. In this lies both collective and individual success.


Jai Hind!
