About Consumers India

Consumers India is an intellectually strong organization comprising of senior  officers of  Government of India (generally retired), doctors, engineers, academics and others, who have joined hands to use their knowledge and experience for the benefit of consumers.

The organization was registered on 18.05.2007 under Societies Registration Act, 1860. It is also registered under Sections 12A read with section 12AA and 80 G (5) (vi) of Income Tax Act, 1961.

Consumers India has taken up several important campaigns with a view to safeguard interests of large number of consumers. Some of them relate to ‘Unethical Medical Practices’, ‘Misleading Advertising’, ‘Ageing with Dignity’, ‘Access to Affordable Medicines’, ‘Hazards of Electronic Waste’, ‘Justice for all…Just Now’, ‘I am a city changer’, ’Right to Information’, ‘Junk the junk food’ etc.

Catalyzing the energy of youth through Internship Programme and All-India Painting/Slogan/On-line Photography Contests etc has been a major milestone achieved by Consumers India.
