  • State of the Indian Consumer: Analyses of the Implementation of the UN Guidelines for Consumer Protection, 1985, in India
    The UN Guidelines have outlined eight areas for consumer protection, which have been translated into eight consumer rights for our discussion in this study. This report/study is meant to highlight the present status with respect to the eight consumer rights in the Indian context. The main objective of this stocktaking exercise is to help in the drafting of a National Consumer Policy and to suggest measures to be undertaken in the future for the proper implementation of the same. The report is also expected to help other countries, particularly the developing ones, in protecting and promoting consumer rights.

  • Numbers At What Cost?
    This publication of CUTS raises the issue of fatalities and morbidities in women as a consequence of the sterilisation operations performed during the family planning drive. This book is dedicated to those motherless children whose mothers were just numbers sacrificed at the altar of family planning; to those women who were treated with scant respect and concern at the sterilisation camps; and to those mothers who were poised between life and death due to sterilisation mishaps. It reveals many untold stories of tragic happenings.
