Describe any three legal measures taken by the government to empower the consumer in India.
To improve the judicial system and give more awareness and education to the people, many legal awareness programmes were designed and launched by the Central Government and various State Governments. The Legal Services Act was passed in 1987 to implement legal services uniformly in the country. Many plans were formulated and implemented to protect the public from unfair actions and to increase social welfare.
Some major plans and schemes introduced under legal awareness are:
• Assistance on accidental deaths- An accidental assistance of Rs. 5 lakhs is provided by the Rajasthan Government in case of the death of registered workers working in the unorganized sector. This is a huge assistance to them as they generally do not receive any benefits as against the workers under the organized sector.
• Rajasthan Vishwakarma Non-Organised Workers Contribution Scheme- The scheme provides pension benefits for the registered workers of the unorganized sector. Contributable pension benefits are given for them for the protection through life.
• State Insurance and Employment Provident Fund Scheme- Rajasthan Government has introduced the Insurance and Provident Fund Scheme for the safety of the workers and to ensure them a huge monetary compensation at the time of their retirement. It is being organized on a contributory basis among workers.
