The Department of Consumer Affairs, Ministry of Consumer Affairs, and Food & Public Distribution have been involved in the NCH project. This initiative aims to provide a platform for consumer education and awareness.
Consumers can reach out through telephonic channels to get comprehensive information, advice, and efficient guidance regarding their queries or grievances.
Consumers can lodge their grievances with the National customer helpline number 1800-11-4000 or 1915 and they can also send an SMS to 8800001915 to register their complaint.
Once you register, the NCH team will start working on your complaint, and you will start getting updates from the NCH agent. Companies are also providing solutions to complaints using NCH. According to our clients, they filed their complaint at the National consumer helpline platform but didn’t receive a proper solution for their complaint. Companies marked their complaint as resolved at NCH instead of providing a solution, and the most common NCH agent remark is:
“The grievance was taken up with the company by NCH, and the company has responded. If you are not satisfied with the company’s response would like to pursue the case with the company for further relief/ compensation in the absence of suitable/ acceptable redressal, you may file a case at the designated Consumer Commission online. Please visit https://edaakhil.nic.in/edaakhil/faces/login.xhtml. Facility of hearing over video-conferencing is also available as per provision Section 38 (6) of the Consumer Protection Act, 2019 provided that the District Commission may, on sufficient cause being shown, and after recording its reasons in writing, allow the same. Complaints filed in the Consumer Commissions are attempted to be disposed off within a period of three months from the date of receipt of notice by the opposite party. In case you wish to file a case offline, you may file a case at the designated Consumer Commission from a place of your convenience. For more information, please visit http://www.ncdrc.nic.in/districtlist.html”
