the heart of the financial regulatory framework Does India need a new law for consumer protection in finance One lesson from the global financial crisis is that unsuitable housing loans sold to pooruneducated consumers could pull down the worlds financial system Very few people would have believed that sub-prime loanswhich constituted a very small part of housing loans and that too only in one countrycould trigger a crisis that led to banks failingmoney markets crashinggovernments fallingcountries going bankruptmillions becoming unemployed and the GDP of many nations going down This is not to argue that the sale of unsuitable housing loans was the only regulatory failure that led to the global crisisbut an important lesson is that a regulatory system that does not prevent the sale of unsuitable financial products to consumers could be putting the financial system and the entire economy at risk Not only is consumer protection an important end in itselfif it lies at the heart of financial regulationbad practices that result in the failure of firms and markets can be checked Today in Indiathere is very little reference to consumer protection in primary legislation in the financial sector Not surprisinglynone of the financial laws on which regulation is basedand which were written long before there was clear thinking about the need for consumer protectionprovides consumers with basic rights or protections Nor do they give regulators a specific set of relevant powers to pursue the objective of consumer protection It is not treated as a core pillar of financial regulation Many countries are rewriting laws to bring this perspective into financial sector regulation Some regulators have issued regulations based on the general rule-making powers given to them in their respective laws For exampleSEBI issued Disclosure and Investor Protection Guidelines in 2000 Various guidelines have been issued by the RBI and IRDA to protect consumers in banking and insurance Howeverconsumer protection regulation remains weak and varies across different sectors and services The approach adopted by the Financial Sector Legislative Reforms Commission (FSLRC) is that consumer protection needs to be treated as a core part of the legal and regulatory framework So the first step towards ensuring consumer protection is to have good primary legislation that provides for it and makes it a priority for regulatorsempowering them adequately The primary law should require all regulators to formulate regulations that ensure consumers are protected from unfair practices Ifin a contractthere is a term that permits one party (often the financial firm) but not the other party (often the customer) to avoid or limit the performance of the contractor to vary the terms of the contract or the services providedthe contract is unfair If the conduct of the financial service providerwho often has greater market poweris misleading or abusive or coercivesuch conduct is unfair Similarlyconsumers should have a right to financial privacydata ownership and data security The laws were written before it was easy for an employee to sell a CD containing the digital records of his firms customers for a small price So the lawsunsurprisinglywere not geared to handle this eventuality Todaywe can argue that consumers should have the legal right to own their financial data Consumers dealing with financial institutions must have the right to expect that their financial activities will have a reasonable amount of privacy They must have the assurance that the data is secure Additional rights and protection need to be given to retail customerswho may be individuals or businessescarrying out small value transactions They are often at an even bigger disadvantage Retail consumers should not be sold unsuitable products The suitability of a financial service or product depends on the profile and needs of the specific consumer The lack of knowledge often makes it difficult for the consumer to decide what will work best for her The law should make it a right for the consumer to be given sufficient timerelevant information andif possiblesound advice to help her decide on the suitability of the financial product she is buying For exampleif a consumer is considering buying life insurancein most casessimple information disclosure is inadequate There should be an assessment of the consumers need Proper advice would be necessary to ensure that the consumer purchases the right kind of insurancewith the optimal level of coverage For certain servicesthe regulator may mandate advice Providers of such services would then not be allowed to approach the potential consumer without some kind of a basic process of needs assessment and advice For exampleregulations could mandate that before a financial institution makes a recommendation to a consumer regarding a specific financial serviceit gathers sufficient information from the customer to ensure that the service is likely to meet her needs and capacity Under the draft Indian Financial Code (IFC)advice would typically be accompanied by increased responsibility for the financial service providermaking it accountable for consumer outcomesleading up to compensation for consumers if they have been poorly advised Most services should come with a high level of responsibility for the providersespecially if the providers approach the consumer Consumers should also be given reasonable time to take the decision For exampleconsumers going in for certain financial services with long-term implications could be allowed a cooling-off periodduring which they may cancel the contract or decide not to enter it Consumer protection regulation is ineffective if consumers do not have an effective ex-post grievance redressal mechanism At presentthis is highly inadequate and varies across sectors The draft IFC proposes to set up a fast and efficient non-sectoralwidely accessible consumer redressal mechanism It seems fairly obvious that consumers should have protection against unfair conduct and terms But we need to put that in the lawbecause unless it says soregulators cannot write regulations that ensure such protection or penalise firms that violate these principles The draft IFC proposes to enshrine these principles in law The writerprofessor at the National Institute

immortal words They fret at the symptomsbut do not address the causes; they blame the messenger but do not go after the culprits; they worry about being declared guilty without a fair hearingwithout introspection on why their credibility is so low It is an elite now so estranged from realitythat it simply does not recognise how the world has changed It is not a world that can be managed by old rules India is on an astonishing cusp; the tragedy is that politiciansfor the most partare not running with the winds of change But they still complain about the dust that is blinding them Delhis corridors of power are now echo chambers of whining Arvind Kejriwal is running a lynch mobthe CAG is taking over the countryenvironmental NGOs have stopped all developmentthe RTI is vexatious and so forth It is as if a vast conspiracy of non-political actors has hamstrung a virtuous political class But the truth is the opposite: it serves the interest of this political class to present itself as victimnow that it has no authority to do business as usual Arvind Kejriwals methods should cause disquiet He does give the impression of a closed circle of certitude: guilt is pronounced with unbreachable confidence Sometimes the lines between political accountability and an inquisition are blurredand often the attacks seem too personalised But whatever the infirmities of the movementwe should not be blindsided by the fact that this mode of seeking accountability is an inevitable consequence of the decimation of institutions You have to feel for Salman Khurshid In a functioning democracy he should not have been subject to a public inquisition Khurshid is a victim But he is not a victim of Kejriwal; he is a victim of his own governments decimation of institutions It is very difficult to trust any institution at the moment The credibility of most commissions of inquiry is low; the CBI does not inspire public confidence In a functioning democracySalman Khurshid would not have had to answer charges in the way he did The grant was made by a ministry; it should have been up to that ministry to assure Parliament that due diligence was being exercised When institutions are decimatedthe lines between innocence and guilt will be blurred But has any party given the slightest hint it wants to restore credibility to institutions But the myopia does not stop at the decimation of institutions Even competitive politics is proving weaker than the forces of collusion between political parties You can accuse Arvind Kejriwal of personalising the anti-corruption crusade But can you name a single political party that is willing to run on an imaginative anti-corruption platform that promises institutional change Forget Robert Vadra for a minute The structural issue is this: will any political party raise the issue of how land has been allotted to real estate companies over the years Expecting Om Prakash Chautala to hold Bhupinder Singh Hooda accountable for real estate allocations would be wishful thinking of the highest order The irrigation scam in Maharashtra is absolutely unconscionable Is any political party serious about forcing accountability for the scam The BJP did make a song and dance about Coalgate; but it was all done through methods that amounted to a large pantomimewhere no truth could be discovered because no institution could be allowed to function The public is not clamouring for a witch hunt But this is a moment where an imaginative political movement could transform the underlying shift in sentiment towards institutional regeneration Has one party stood up and said: we will do real estate regulation differently Or restore credibility to institutions In other countriesthe crisis of corruption leads at least some political party to put out a forward-looking agenda of institutional reform During the progressive movementit led to the dismantling of party machines at the municipal levelgreater intra party-democracycreation of new institutions and so forth In Brazil recentlysuccessive presidents have run on anti-corruption platformsbut then translated them into proper institutional channels: Lulas closest aides were recently indicted for corruption The danger to Indian democracy is not Kejriwals closed circle of certitude; it is the closed circle of institutional complicity that makes it so hard to embed anti-corruption in any political setting This closed circle is compounded by the fact that the other locations of institutional regeneration are quite ambiguous The media has proved to be a double-edged sword It is fomenting passionbut it is not exactly a reliable ally in producing the whole truth Sections of the media are politically motivated; it too has perfected the art of trial by anecdote In addition to political parties and the mediathe third site of a progressive shift would be pressure from the topwhere Indias rich and powerful decide that it is in their long-term interest to have a regime of rules rather than a regime of deals But Indian capital does not have that imagination yet; nor does it have a broader visionlike Henry Ford didof being able to align its prosperity with the flourishing of Indias rising classes from the bottom As a resultit insecurely latches on to to the coat-tails of a political class whose fortunes are fast fading Kejriwals politics is not to be understood in personalised terms; his limitations are beside the point He is a symptom of a suffocating systemnot the cause of its decline The danger is that Kejriwal might forget three things Firsthis spectacle still does not have wide traction His movement is still very much a Delhi-based spectacle His economic message is still quite obscurantistalthough his readiness to put decentralisation on the agenda is tantalising The politics of spectacle threatens to obscure these underlying issuesand may unleash the clamour for an authoritarian form of cleansing no one may be able to control But the political class has to recognise that no one has tied its hands It has tied itself into so many knots that the only card it knows how to play is the card of victimhood Kejriwal
