The main objective of the FGD’s would be to sensitise a large base of relevant stakeholders on issues pertaining to need of nutrition labels in broadband services. The purpose is to ensure that the relevant stakeholders fully understand the concept and its implications, with the purpose of creating a sense of ownership towards the adoption of nutrition labels in India. It is important to understand the challenges that would surface at the time of introduction of nutrition labels and be prepared in advance to overcome those challenges. The project partners would be responsible for submission of the report of the FGDs to CUTS.
