CAA, an illegal institution?

The Consumer Affairs Authority has become an illegal institution as one of its senior members is without the required qualifications, says the National Movement for the Protection of Consumer Rights.

In a statement, the Movement says the CAA’s chairman and 10 members should be experienced and have excellence in industrial
law, economics, commercial administration, accounts and health.

However, there are questions about the qualifications of its member A.R.B. Nimathdeen, it says.

The Movement asked the CAA, as per the right to information act, to furnish his educational qualifications, but it had replied six months later that it did not possess the information sought, as he had been appointed by the subject minister.
