Indian Australian community in NSW has many associations, but most of these associations are based on region, religion or language of India. A few are business and professional associations. Some are Umbrella bodies, but they have not fulfilled the genuine needs of the community.

While a few associations, especially a few individual leaders, have done marvelous job in helping people in need and promoting Indian culture, a vast number of associations and their leaders have been ineffective and non-productive in their expected roles and responsibilities. Their focus has been in photo-ops with politicians and Indian Government officials.
