National Council for Civil Liberties (NCCL) began its journey as a modest yet motivated citizen’s initiative in March 1991.
It was set up by a group of people driven by a desire to do something more tangible than just debating the evils of society. The organization’s defined objective was: to fight evils that deter the peace and progress of society, in all forms, by all means.
In the years that followed, NCCL championed several issues of national importance. It fought righteous battles against monolithic Public Sector Undertakings (PSUs), private companies and Central & State Governments. It undertook drives to create awareness against injustice and expose social myths. It implemented self-perpetuated solutions for acute water crises in various regions. It sought legal remedies for unfair trade practices, and followed up the cases to their logical conclusions.
Today, this no-profit organization has evolved as a prime mover of opinion, a frontline organizer of relief material, a feared legal warrior, and a prominent voice raised in support of social causes and public good.
NCCL is registered under the Societies Act, and recognized by the Ministry of Law & Justice (Department of Company Affairs), Government of India.
