Consumer around the globe, today, is witnessing a period  of rapid change in the wake of digital transformation which  brings to us new technologies, new kinds of business  models, transactions through different modes, in addition  to other wide range of innovative goods, services and  practices. 

This digital era is profoundly impacting our economy and  societies by changing the ways in which consumers used  to interact with each other because of online marketplaces  and businesses. Consumer’s interest including Consumer  data and other rights recognized by the law is really at  stake today. In this context, it becomes sine-qua-non to  have a robust legal system addressing each and every  issues of the consumer by ensuring safety in online  transactions to encourage a wide range of innovative and  emerging business models, technologies, and  transactions to be used and applied by the sellers and the  purchaser of any goods or services. These new  developments raise potential consumer issues in terms of  transparency and disclosure; discrimination and choice;  privacy and security; and accountability.

❖All  submissions  must be  made to:-

The new legislation of 2019 and rules made thereunder, have made an honest  attempt to address the issues of online transactions by fixing the liability to the  concerned. Despite being a robust law, sometimes, it fails to address the issues of  the consumers owing to some technical, social and legal boundaries, arising in day  to day life. The proposed book will try to make an honest attempt to address all  these issues which have either not been addressed under existing legal systems  (under any consumer legislations) or even if addressed, it has failed to achieve the  aspirations of the consumers to their satisfaction. It will address all these issues by  having a comparative analysis of legislations with some of the robust consumer 

friendly countries of the world.
