Right To RepairImage Credit source: GOI
If there is some fault in the new electronic goods, then one has to go to the service center. At the same time, even after getting minor repairs done in the car-bike, a huge amount is collected in the service center. To save on warranty, people do not get the repairs done at local shops or workshops. However, now it will be a thing of the past. ,As the government has brought special rights for you. Now car-bike has become an electronic item like TV-fridge, you can get them repaired anywhere. Even after doing this, you will continue to get the benefit of warranty.
The Consumer Affairs Ministry (MCA) has constituted a committee with a ‘right to repair’ framework. With ‘Right to Repair’, people can get many products including electronics and automobiles repaired at a cheap price. This will not affect the warranty of the products.
Four sectors included in ‘right to repair’
The benefit of Right to Repair will be available on the products of a total of four sectors. These include agricultural equipments, products like mobiles and tablets, TV-fridges and automobiles.
- Farming Equipments
- Mobiles & Electronics
- consumer durables
- Automobile Equipments
Under this policy, it is necessary for the companies to share the details of their products with the people, so that the products can be repaired themselves or at local shops.
The companies enrolled in govt.program include:
Apple Samsung Boat Oppo
Havells Luminous Panasonic Microtek
SSP Computers RDP Workstations TAFE Motors and Tractors
The list is expected to increase…
