It is a unique offering in the consumer grievance space. It gives us a great sense of fulfillment and pride to re-launch it in a strong new avatar. Pehredaar now will see the show much sharper, to represent consumer rights better- which is what our country needs with consumer protection and representation going through an identity crisis of sorts.”

Priyanka Sambhav, Anchor, Pehredaar said “We realized that companies operating here are taking the consumers for a ride. With Pehredaar, we set out to change this imbalance and ensured that consumers’ voice is heard and issues they face get resolved.
