Answer: [D] 1, 2 & 3

The Consumer Protection Act, 1986 (68 of 1986) was enacted to better protect the interests of consumers by establishing a three-tier quasi-judicial consumer dispute redressal machinery at the National, State and District levels for settlement of consumer disputes. These are called Consumer Fora and they are quasi judicial bodies.

Thus, all statements are correct in this question. Please note that this act is not applicable in J & K and J & K has its own Consumer Protection Act.
