Citizen Consumer Club of Ethiraj College, the brain child of the former Chairman, Thiru. Dr. A. M. Swaminathan, was inaugurated on 2nd December 2008 by Mr. K. Rajaraman I.A.S, Commissioner, Department of Civil Supplies and Consumer Protection. The motto of the club is to enhance awareness among the student community about the rights and responsibilities as a consumer. It has constantly focused on imparting this knowledge to encourage students to stand up against malicious practices prevailing in the society. The club has 500 students as members. Eminent personalities from various walks of life are invited to address students on topics ranging from Product Standard and Hallmarking, Food Adulteration and Right to Information Act. Student members get an opportunity to interact and work with learned professionals and consumer activists with rich experience to combat for solutions on one platform.
Consumer Connect: The CCC of Ethiraj has its own newsletter – the Consumer Connect – which is a bi-annual publication, covering a wide range of consumer related issues and facts such as product testing, certification marks, sustainable consumption, health and environmental issues. This venture is the first of its kind among the citizen consumer clubs of all schools and colleges in Tamil Nadu.
