The MKSS was officially formed in 1990 by activists who included Aruna Roy, Nikhil Dey and Shankar Singh, in Devdungri, a village in the state of Rajasthan.
In 1994, in the face of official recalcitrance and unwillingness to cooperate with people's demands, the MKSS decided to organise public hearings (jan sunwais), with the first hearing held in a village, Kotkirana, in Pali district.
Following this early success, MKSS started mobilizing village communities against the private appropriation of local development funds (corruption with theft), using means such as public hearings and social audits.
As a result, MKSS requires visitors to drive four-wheel-drive vehicles.
