Dubai - Arabstoday

Getting your hair styled or a dress made for Eid should not cost you more this year, a senior official at the Ministry of Economy told Gulf News. Dr Hashim Al Nuaimi, director of the Consumer Protection Department in the Ministry of Economy, said the ministry is launching a campaign aimed at stopping hairdressers and tailors across the UAE from increasing prices during Eid. Tailors and salon owners who violate the consumer law face fines of up to Dh100,000. He said that many salon owners and tailors look to make big profits during Eid by doubling their prices. \"Women staff from the Ministry of Economy will visit these hair salons to check if they abide by the consumer law and stick to the list of prices approved by the ministry,\" he said. Repeated violation \"Those who violate the consumer law will receive strict penalties and fines ranging from Dh500 to Dh100,000,\" he said. \"However, repeated violations would lead to closure of shops.\" He has warned businesses against profiteering during Eid. Al Nuaimi said the government aims to step up its drive against violators and will not be lenient in combating the unexplained price increase because it affects family budgets. \"This campaign is not to beat the illegal practice but to alert both business owners as well as consumers of their rights and duties.\" In May, the Ministry of Economy modified certain articles of the federal consumer protection law by introducing tough penalties to deter monopoly practices and price manipulation. Al Nuaimi said the Ministry has 40 teams of inspectors who work in cooperation with UAE municipalities and conduct daily tours to inspect prices and retailers\' compliance with preset prices and consumer rights. He urged consumers not to be hesitant to contact the ministry directly or any economic department across the different emirates to file a complaint against retailers who follow illegal practices. \"It is necessary as a consumer to know that your rights are secured by all the laws and regulations of the UAE.\" Report it Consumers can report price violations to the ministry via the hotline 600 522225. They need to produce an invoice from the concerned hairstylist or tailor when required.
