Unity and Trust Society (CUTS) is a leading think-tank working on
economic and public policy issues. From its modest beginnings in
1983, CUTS has grown significantly as a local and global research
and advocacy group in addressing the challenges to enhance
consumer welfare. From a small voluntary consumer non-governmental
organisation (NGO) working locally in Rajasthan, a state in North
West India, to make consumers aware of their rights and seek
resolution of their grievances, CUTS has over time progressed to
policy research and network-based advocacy on various public
policy issues at state, national, regional and international
Its work spans a multi-pronged agenda targeted
to the realisation of CUTS’ Vision of ‘Consumer sovereignty’
and its Mission of ‘consumer sovereignty in the framework of
social justice, economic equality and environmental balance,
within and across borders.’
CUTS work now revolves
around three verticals: Rules-based Trade, Effective Regulation
and Good Governance. This graduation happened organically because
of the demands made on CUTS to work on policy issues, which would
enhance consumer welfare, with the realisation that consumers need
to be protected upfront and not only ex post.
