He said that the amendment bill was expected to pass in the next parliamentary session.
"After suggestions from a parliamentary standing committee and public, we have incorporated some changes in the Act. The changes allow a complainant to plead his case himself, mediation to be done at any stage, and stricter fines on misleading advertising," Paswan told reporters here.
He also said that the government was planning to create a Consumer Protection Authority (CPA), which will have power to investigate the case at any stage - before purchase, during purchase and after purchase.
"The authority can take a class action. It means it can cancel or ban entire lot if it finds even a single unit defective," said Mr Paswan.
