A tort is an act or omission that gives rise to injury or harm to another and amounts to a civil wrong for which courts impose liability. In the context of torts, "injury" describes the invasion of any legal right, whereas "harm" describes a loss or detriment in fact that an individual suffers. It is derived from the English common law system. However, over a period of time, it has undergone numerous changes. The law of torts largely remains uncodified, however, certain aspects have been codified in India like consumer protection, motor vehicle accident, environment degradation etc.
The most recent codified version of consumer protection law in India is the Consumer Protection Act, 2019 which replaces its predecessor of 1986. The 2019 Act also deals with the technological advancements in the industry, provides for easier filing of complaints and also imposes strict liability on businesses including endorsers for violating consumers’ interest.
