The purpose and purpose of the enactment of the 1986 Act is to provide simple, inexpensive and quick redress to consumers who have complaints about defective goods and services. This benevolent law should protect a large number of consumers from exploitation. A mere reading of the provisions of Article 13(2)(a) makes it clear that the copy of the complaint to be sent to the objector must be accompanied by instructions that it be submitted in writing within 30 days.

One such special law to protect the interests of innocent consumers is the Consumer Protection Act of 1986. Any consumer who is deceived by the entrepreneur and whose rights are denied to him may file a complaint against the entrepreneur under this Act. A consumer is anyone who has purchased goods for a certain monetary value for personal consumption. A consumer can file a complaint himself or contact a legal representative.
