  NGOs >> AGNI - non-political, non-sectarian


AGNI is a non-political, non-sectarian voluntary moment for good governance. It is a self-help network of volunteers. By bringing numerous groups of citizens together, AGNI amplifies the citizens’ voice in a way that democracy intends and no politics can ignore. The emphasis is on improving the quality of life of citizens.

In the AGNI network each organization maintains its role, character, structure and activities. AGNI fosters communication among them and promotes partnership with government to realize citizen goals.


The basic field unit of AGNI is its JAAG (Joint Area Action Group) functioning in almost every Municipal Ward. It comprises one or more Ward Coordinators and volunteers representing different areas or activities. JAAGs identify local priorities and help tackle them through interaction among the citizens, administrative set ups and elected representatives. Each JAAG may have activities different from other JAAGs. However, some activities are decided centrally and are implemented by all the JAAGs.

Being a wholly voluntary moment AGNI needs the support and contribution of every citizen to continue its work. Citizens are invited to contribute their indispensable ideas, time, effort and financial support. Donations are eligible for exemption under section 80G of the Income Tax Act.
