 After globalisation, liberalisation and privatization the MNCs are in the trend to sell their products & services by exploiting the consumers. Every person is a consumer day-in & day-out from his birth to his death. Thus it is essential for each and every person to know his basic consumer rights. Hence Ministry Of Consumer Affairs, Food & Public Distribution Department of Consumer Affairs, Government of India, New Delhi established Chair on Consumer Law and Practice at NLSIU to promote research, teaching, publication and training in Consumer Law and Practice. CLAP which is acting as a Think Tank is also advising the Ministry of Consumer Affairs and the State Governments with respect to consumer related issues, drafting legislations, amendments to the existed laws.

In this regard CLAP launched PGDCLP in the year 2011 to enrich the stakeholders such as Academicians, Professionals, Government official, Consumer Forum Members, NGOs, etc. PGDCLP is designed for any graduate with a view to bring awareness for the consumers about their basic consumer rights and strengthening Consumer Protection in India.
