Established in 1996, CUTS Centre for Consumer Action, Research & Training (CUTS CART) is a research and advocacy Centre. This Programme Centre was created as a result of diversification of CUTS in order to move ahead with its inherited agenda: consumer protection and education, and to create a more responsible society. In order to contribute in the CUTS’ vision of CONSUMER SOVEREIGNTY, CUTS CART endeavors through the mission ‘To enable consumers, particularly the poor and the marginalized to achieve their right to basic needs, sustainable development and good governance through strong consumer movement’

Continuous pioneering work in the area of consumer protection found CART at the forefront of the consumer movement in India and beyond. So far, the Centre has trained over 1200 activists and created 300 independent groups in Rajasthan and elsewhere. Moreover, CART is credited to have about 1000 organisations in its network.
