During the 1950's the Natal Indian Congress took an active part in protest politics. It rendered support to the various non-white and white organisations that supported the cause for a just South Africa.

The list of banned persons from the Natal Indian Congress, the African National Congress and the South African Congress of Democrats were given due prominence at the Eighth Annual Provincial Conference of the Natal Indian Congress held on 25-27 March 1955.
