How Grahak Bhavan was built
Certainly not in a day!
Rapid growth in buying groups led to overcrowding at the warehouses. At the same time MGP is in the limelight for its distribution system, its education and protection activities. The need was felt for its own premises. At this time, the Bombay Municipal Corporation (BMC) made available to MGP about 5000 sq.ft. Plot in Juhu on long lease. On 15th March, 1987, the then Municipal Commissioner, Shri. S.S.Tinaikar laid the foundation stone of ‘GRAHAK BHAVAN’ at Juhu. On 13th March, 1988, former Chief Justice of India Shri Yashwantrao Chandrachud inaugurated ‘Grahak Bhavan’. The money was raised through membership fees and by asking MGP members for donations and interest-free deposits for this specific purpose. It was built by the consumers, for the consumers at a cost of Rs. 15 lacs. Not a single paisa was asked from government, trade or any other organization!
