Dhruv Research is a law-abiding Indian entity incorporated as a Trust. It has engaged in Market Research activities since its inception, within the electoral and brand domain, inviting people's opinion on socio¬economic issues with no allegiance to any political outfit or organization. Eliciting people's opinion within an ethical framework, on a voluntary basis, towards empowering the citizenry is well within the purview of the constitution and plays a significant role in the democratic machinery.
Any obstruction to the field activities carried out by Dhruv Research through its nominated personnel by any individual, entity or association will be seen as an obstruction to the democratic right provided by the Indian Constitution, inviting legal proceedings.
