The Consumer Affairs Commission (CAC) says it has collected J$16.3 million in compensation for aggrieved consumers so far this year.



Chief Executive Officer of the CAC, Dolsie Allen, says just about half the sum, or J$8.2 million, came from the motor vehicle industry. Allen said the CAC received 82 complaints from the motor vehicle industry, 66 of which have been resolved.



In addition, CAC CEO says since the start of the current financial year, the agency has settled 686 of the 877 complaints received, which means that it has settled 78 per cent of complaints.



She was speaking during a stakeholder sensitization meeting on the revised motor vehicle policy held the Institute of Jamaica last Thursday.
