MUMBAI: On the occasion of the ‘World Consumer Rights day’, The Advertising Standards Council of India (ASCI) urges consumers to not just be vigilant but also take action against misleading advertisements by informing ASCI through a simple WhatsApp message on +91-7710012345.  Additionally, consumers can also reach out to ASCI through website ascionline.org  or via e:mail to contact@ascionline.org

ASCI chairman D Shivakumar said, “Consumer is the King or Queen and has a voice today, thanks to the digital medium. ASCI encourages consumers to reach out to ASCI using our WhatsApp number, it’s as simple as that.”

‘World Consumer Rights Day’, originated in 1983, is an occasion to remind the world about the importance of observing and enforcing consumer rights. It is celebrated with a purpose to unite the consumers and reiterate that corporations must keep in mind their responsibilities. Advertising is an indispensable mode of communication and has always been an important medium to persuade consumers and create a perception about a certain product or service.

Established in 1985, The Advertising Standards Council of India (ASCI), a self-regulatory organisation, is working towards protecting the interests of consumers by ensuring that the advertisements conform to the Code of Self-Regulation of advertising content. While ASCI does not accept anonymous complaints, it maintains utmost confidentiality with respect to complainant’s identity. Each complainant gets acknowledgement and unique tracking ID number for their complaint. Key milestones of complaint processing are informed via automated SMSs. ASCI receives over 300 complaints a month from end consumers.
