Activities under National Service Scheme


February 27th 2016 

The Consumer Guidance Society of India, conducted a seminar for students of UG and PG in collaboration with the NSS SFU of the institute.

Founded in 1966, CGSI has been actively championing the rights of consumers for more than 40 years. The Society was founded by women activists in the year 1966. Their aim was to protect the rights of consumers, who found themselves helpless whenever they were supplied with defective goods or services. The efforts of CGSI and other Consumer Organizations of our country bore fruit when the Consumer Protection Act was enacted in the year 1986 and the Consumer Courts were set up thereafter.

Mr. Santosh Shukla, Secretary Consumer Guidance Society of India then spoke on various issues related to consumer rights. He mentioned that it is often the lethargy of the common man which prevents us from fighting against injustice meted out to us as consumers, and assured the audience that the Consumer Guidance Society is there to help us fight for our rights whenever we are deprived of them.

Mr. Bipin Raje, Sr. Business Associate LIC of India, Navi Mumbai and Mr. R. S. Nayak, Sr. Zonal Manager, pointed out the benefits of being insured and also warned us from being fooled by agents who do not read out all the terms and conditions to us while making us their customers.

Mr. Varun Keshari, NSS Program Officer concluded by the vote of thanks to all the delegates for their efforts.
