Well, are you holding me completely for a fool? Of course, before taking these pills, I stuffed the food into myself. And omelet and breast boiled and yogurt and fruit. But literally the next day I vomited before taking azithromycin 250mg. Previous use 9 months ago, too, was with such side effects.

CGSI has reached out to lakhs of consumers and conducted workshops and seminars on consumer awareness topics like food adulteration, becoming a smart investor and consumer protection.

Founded in 1966

CGSI founded 50 years ago by women activists in 1966 actively champions for the rights of consumers. It aims to protect the rights of consumers, who find themselves helpless whenever they were supplied with defective goods or services.

The efforts of CGSI and other Consumer Organizations in India bore fruit when the Consumer Protection Act was enacted in the year 1986 and the Consumer Courts were set up thereafter.
