On the occasion of 51st anniversary of Doordarshan, on 2nd October, Mumbai Doordarshan is coming out with a few interesting programmes for its viewers.

One such programme is a weekly Marathi Programme “Jago Grahak” which will be telecast every Monday from 2nd October onwards.

Consumer is supposed to be a King of the market economy. However, at every stage in marketplace he is often cheated, fleeced and exploited. Online shopping and online banking has further increased the incidents of cheating and fleecing the consumer through various fraudulent and deceptive practices. One of the reasons for this is consumers’ ignorance about their own rights and lack of awareness about various consumer laws.

Government has enacted a revised Consumer Protection Act for protection of consumers, RERA Act for protecting homebuyers, Mediation Act to give speedy alternative dispute resolution mechanism for litigants. Unfortunately, consumers are blissfully unaware of these consumer laws and consumer rights. When problems arise, very often literate and even highly educated consumers are not aware of where to complain, how to complain, how to get their grievance redressed. To overcome this sorry state of affairs, Doordarshan will be telecasting a weekly Programme “Jago Grahak” in collaboration with Mumbai Grahak Panchayat (MGP), a leading consumer organization to create wide-spread awareness among consumers. The programme to be telecast every Monday 7:30 pm will feature some aggrieved consumers narrating their  woes or how they fought successful battles, which will be followed by illuminating discussion with senior leaders from consumer movement and experts from various fields.

This programme wil be anchored by Ms Rashmi Amdekar under the able guidance of Adv. Shirish Deshpande, Chairman of Mumbai Grahak Panchayat. The concept is developed by Sandeep Sood, Head of the Programmes, DD-Sahyadri and produced and directed by Sh Bharat Harankhure.
