Introduction: The Rogi Kalyan Samitis (RKSs) in Uttarakhand were formed at community health centers (CHCs) to monitor and improve the quality of services offered. Methodology: An independent study was taken up to study the progress made by RKSs in two districts of the state. This article presents the different factors affecting the functioning of RKSs. Data were collected from all member secretaries and at least 20% sampled members in all RKSs in eight CHCs. Results: RKS is not functioning properly in both the districts because of a number of inhibitory factors such as poor interest of the members and lack of awareness among members and the general community. Conclusion: Educational activities about spreading awareness regarding the existence and activities of RKS should be undertaken in those areas where the RKS is not performing well.
