IDSA was formed with five companies including our current members Amway, Avon and Oriflame to protect the ideals and opportunities of what was then a sunrise industry. The Association was incorporated in Mumbai in 1996 and moved its registered office to New Delhi in 1998, from where it continues to operate.
Since Inception the Association has grown to several members representing over a million independent salespeople in India and still counting.
IDSA's members are leading Indian and international organizations engaged in the business of direct selling in India.
