With the advent of the Consumer Protection Act, 2019, a new consumer protection regime is in place in India. The New Act is undoubtedly more robust and much broader in scope but not without its archetypal challenges. The objective of this article is to highlight these archetypal challenges and provide suggestions to help mitigate them. In doing so, this article aims to elicit varied perspectives on consumer protection in India and provides a critique of the New Act.
