Abstract:
The linkage of consumer satisfaction, consumer retention, and business performance has always been well established in the marketing literature, thereby attaching abundant importance to consumer satisfaction measurement. Though some research has already been made to measure satisfaction with a government agencies' service, yet little investigation has been made of extent of satisfaction about the performance of outside government agencies that act as third-party for consumers to gain marketplace redress. As the number of third-party complaints is increasing, present study is a timely investigation. This paper aims at measuring consumer satisfaction with regard to complaint resolution mechanism, where dissatisfied consumer lodge complaint with the consumer dispute redressal forums, established as per the provisions of Consumer Protection Act 1986.
