Abstract: Formed by Mahatma Gandhi at the turn of the twentieth century, The Transvaal Indian Congress (TIC), although not banned, was severely affected by the harsh repression of the period. After declining during the late 1960s, its activities became virtually non-existent in the 1970s, at which time some activists in the community had become involved in Black Consciousness organisations. TIC was revived in 1983. After the unbanning of the African National Congress (ANC) in 1990, many TIC members became involved in the newly-formed ANC, and as a result TIC became dormant, although it never officially disband.
