    India has already embraced the spirit of "CONSUMERISM" because when it comes to consumption of food, medicines or clothing or any other daily requirements. The population is growing every passing day, and therefore the "Supply and Demand" will play an active role throughout India. The groceries, the clothing shops, the pharmacies and even Restaurants will continue to multiply over the years.

    It is therefore extremely gratifying to note that St. Aloysius College is going to conduct a Seminar on "Consumer Protection". This kind of Seminar would be highly beneficial to all the Graduating students so that they can carry the knowledge with them to the "real world" of consumerism. In America there must be at least a million Inspector
    whose job is to protect the manufacturers as well as the consumers
    with stringent control on not only the quality of consumer products
    but also the pricing and the validity of the product.

    This is a good step in the direction for all the young students to know where lies their future career goals and where they need be specialized on various regulations and protection of consumer products.
