Consumers Courts In Mumbai

Posted by Deepak Shetty on November 4, 2009

Consumer_CourtIN 1986, Indian government introduced a new Act for the protection of consumers known as COPRA (Consumers Protection Act). The provisions of this Act cover ‘goods’ as well as ‘services’.  The goods are those which are manufactured or produced and sold to consumers through wholesalers and retailers.  The services are in the nature of transport, telephone, electricity, housing, banking, insurance, medical treatment, etc. According to this, no shopkeeper or businessman should cheat the consumer. IF done so, consumer can report in Consumers forum or courts. These courts are meant for protection of consumers. There are 3 levels of Consumer forum:-

1) District level
2) State level
3) Country level

Mumbai being a big city has people who face problems with many products or services they have brought, and sometimes going back to the shop isnt a good idea, as they do nothing about it and refuse to replace or refund the money or even compensate for any faulty services. So when it comes to this point you need to visit a consumer court in Mumbai. Below is a list of consumer courts in Mumabi where you can file your complaint, please find consumer court Mumbai addresses and telephone numbers

Mumbai gets Laser Show Garden To attract Tourism!!!

Posted by Deepak Shetty on August 3, 2009

Mumbai has always been a place of tourist attraction, it has a long list of sites to be visited. Historical sites, contemporary wonders, archaeological sites, religious sites and natural wonders. Recently the Bandra Worli Sea Link was Inaugurated and now to add more to its attraction for tourists the city has got a garden equipped with multimedia laser show and musical fountains.

The Bharat Van Garden, situated at Marol in the western suburb of Andheri, was inaugurated on 2 August by Union Minister of State for Information and Technology Communications Gurudas Kamat yesterday. The garden, developed by Maharashtra Tourism Development Corporation (MTDC), is spread across a hillock over about five acres of land and MTDC had sanctioned Rs 7.33 crore for procuring and installing equipment for musical fountains and multimedia laser show.

The Maharashtra Housing and Area Development Authority (MHADA) had carried out its beautification. After inauguration, Mr Kamat said, ” We have fulfilled our commitment and this garden is developed to promote tourism, it will be a special tourist attraction for all Mumbaikars and especially, the incoming domestic and foreign tourists in the city.”

This is a nice approach to add on to tourist attraction in mumbai, hope there are also measures taken to maintain the place after spending such a huge amount in making it .There are already objections coming up against it which I think should be solved as Mumbai is more famous for objections and protests along with development in the city.
