Mission and Purpose

From the CUTS International Website (

"From a modest beginning in 1983 as a rural development communication initiative launched through a wall newspaper Gram Gadar (Village Revolution), CUTS has come a long way over the last three decades. Today its work spans a multipronged agenda targeted to the realisation of its Vision of Consumer Sovereigntyí and its Mission of consumer sovereignty in the framework of social justice, economic equality and environmental necessity, within and across borders. In simple language, the Vision relates to the creation of Value for People in their diverse roles as consumers, producers and depositors/suppliers of human capital. As every citizen in an economy performs more than one and sometimes all these roles simultaneously, such creation of value should be looked upon as a single unified Vision for achieving greater Consumer Welfare through Consumer Empowerment."
