It shows consumers how they can claim compensation if they have faced deficient or unfair trade practices or if they have purchased defective goods. This book presents real-life cases from various sectors such as medical, insurance, banking, education, housing, public utilities and so on, that have actually been decided by the consumer forums. Case-specific illustrations provide visual relief and highlight the irony of the situation. The author discusses all the stages for filing a complaint, right from drafting the first letter to claiming compensation. Advice for corporations is also given, so that brand quality and consumer satisfaction may be maintained.
