Reported By: Nayantara Malhotra

The Supreme Court has admitted an appeal wherein it will examine whether educational institutions and universities would be subject to Consumer Protection Act, 1986. The appeal was filed by the students of Vinayaka Mission University, Salem against the decision of National Consumer Disputes Redressal Commission (NCDRC), wherein it was held that educational institutions didn’t impart services, and accordingly were not covered under the provisions of the Consumer Protection Act, 1986.
