Ghulam Shabir, Sobia Ghous, Ghulam Safdar


This research paper attempts to evaluate the consumer rights and their violation by electronic media through advertisement. This is misguiding the consumer to buy harmful and unnecessary products. This research also aims at interpolating and ascertaining the onus of responsibility of a responsible media with regards to advertising. In the recent past the principle of “Caveat Emptor” which meant “Buyers beware” governed the relationship between a seller and buyer. In the era of open markets the buyer and seller came face to face, seller exhibited his goods, and buyer thoroughly examined them and then purchased them. The assumption would be consumer would use all his care and skill while entering into a transaction. The buyer to examine the goods before hand and most of the transactions are now concluded by correspondence. Discussion on consumer’s rights and their violation by media through advertisements is suggestive that consumers today enjoy a good amount of legal protection. But, even today, a large number of us remain exploited.

Keywords: Consumer, Advertisement, Violation of Rights, Electronic Media legislation.
