Shri Ram Vilas Paswan
Hon’ble Minister for Consumer Affairs, Food and Public Distribution
Greetings to all of you! I have recently assumed charge as Minister for Consumer Affairs, Food and Public Distribution. The NDA government is committed to uphold and protect the welfare of consumers. I am committed to ensure that the best possible services are extended to all consumers in the country, particularly rural consumers, women and children. Consumer Protection in terms of quality, quantity and safety are of utmost importance. All efforts will be made to ensure this through hallmarking, improvement of laboratory infrastructure and strict enforcement. I seek the cooperation of all stakeholders such as Voluntary Consumer Organizations (VCOs), State Governments, National Consumer Disputes Redressal Commission (NCDRC), State Consumer Fora, District Fora, and Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS), to work together in our efforts to empower the consumers of the country.
