World Consumer's right day

Raising global awareness for consumer rights and needs is the vital necessity of today, we all are a consumer in a different way and features and our demands and rights must be protected and preserved. Globally, consumer the right is frequently interrupted by market abuses and social injustices, undermining consumer rights is a direct violation of the human rights and its form.

The world is connected by technology and these technical platforms in themselves are the biggest market place, the scenario of consumer rights have been changed a lot since its first emancipation. The consumer right day of march 15th connects to the march 15th on 1962 when former US president John F Kennedy delivered a special message to US congress with an apparent address to the consumer right globally.

Competition and consumer protection can create a context of economic growth and poverty alleviation in a developing nation like Nepal. Competition creates innovation in producer's arena and creates a more open and competitive business environment enabling employment opportunity and community involvement. On the other hand, consumer protection benefits all consumers by assuring that they are consuming non-hazardous products and services, delivers them informed choice decision making and bringing several alternates to their palate.

Consumer right is also about empowering consumers, Nepali consumers are considered one among the aware and empowered consumers dealing with domestic and multinational products for a long time. Internationalization and institutionalization of consumer right related laws are the need for today, UN guidelines for the protection of consumer right has been playing a substantial role in the global market. Consumer right day advocates for the economic and social well-being of consumers across the globe wishes of a meaningful consumer right day to all responsible service and product generators and aware consumers.

Hamro Patro - Connecting Nepali Communities
Hamro Patro is one of the first Nepali app to include Nepali Patro, launched in 2010. We started with a Nepali Calendar mobile app to help Nepalese living abroad stay in touch with Nepalese festivals and important dates in Nepali calendar year. Later on, to cater to the people who couldn’t type in Nepali using fonts like Preeti, Ganesh and even Nepali Unicode, we built nepali mobile keyboard called Hamro Nepali keyboard.
