Aggrieved consumers can heave a sigh of relief, as the Consumer Guidance Society of India (CGSI) will hold a consumer grievance redressal camp and milk testing drive on July 8 at Thane.
The camp — held in association with the department of food, civil supplies and consumer protection — will cover topics such as banking, credit cards, financial services, airlines, railways, transport, food, medical services, government services, RTI, weights and measures, telecom, construction and realty, MRP, online purchasing and electronics and mobiles.
The leading professionals of such industries will address consumers at the camp. To create awareness about the quality of milk supplied, CGSI will conduct live milk testing through its electronic milk analyser, free of charge, and issue a written report of the analysis to consumers. Milk samples will be brought by school and college students.
“By organising this camp in various parts of the city, we are trying to reach out to more consumers and help them solve their problems,” said MS Kamath, secretary, CGSI.
