Collector Vijay Pingale urged people to be vigilant consumers.

Addressing a National Consumer Day programme organised here recently, he said that Consumer Protection Act was enacted in the country December 24, 1986 and the day is being celebrated as National Consumer Day since then.

“People should watch out for the date of manufacturing, expiry, batch number, price, quantity, quality and price of any packaged commodity. Consumers should insist on receipt,” he said.
