    Wholly free of ideology, we look at the Indian developmental paradigms, purely modeled upon the basis of ‘objective reality’. We passionately believe in the credo that we constantly seek to follow: rethink, edify and delineate. This enduring commitment has helped us foster and broaden the parameters of public policy debate and alternatives.

    As a premier ‘ideas organization’ in Asia, the IIPM Think Tank is committed to enhance public awareness of policy issues in economics and management and to engineer solutions that will fulfill the Great Indian Dream. The think tank undertakes a number of activities, among them research and advocacy on public policy issues.

    By publishing the findings of its research, and through the active participation of its senior researchers in the media and policy, it aims to bring new knowledge to the attention of policy makers. It is a core activity in think tank’s capacity building and networking efforts. Every year, the IIPM Think Tank commissions and publishes four editions, on a wide range of policy issues including education, health, poverty, unemployment, agriculture, industry, services, FDI, external trade, infrastructure, governance and environment. All these outputs meet the highest standards of scholarship, are accessible to a broad readership, and explore policy alternatives consistent with the philosophy of ours. The central theme of our issues are devoted to assess where the critical predicaments are, analyzing what needs to be done to annul the element of development deterrents in the economy and offer concrete proposals on how to accelerate welfare everywhere towards achieving inclusive development. The India Economy Review is a small manifestation of that vision. More than 1,000 students (seven nodes of IIPM) have— and continue to—spent endless hours conducting primary and secondary research on contemporary issues that confront the Indian economy. This research is then analysed threadbare across the seven campuses. Brand new insights and policy recommendations that are provided by this core team are then crafted, honed and polished by the Economics Research Group (ERG). This massive effort is spearheaded and led by the renowned economist and management guru, Professor. Arindam Chaudhuri.

    We trust that the untiring efforts of the IIPM Think Tank are a modest, yet significant contribution to the policy reinvention that is poised to transform India. You can help the IIPM Think Tank to spread practical economic ideas and to change events by becoming one of our growing base of subscribers. Please remember, the think tank’s work is wholly dependent on the support of those who appreciate the difference that it can create, and who discern just how important it is that first-rate ideas are infused into the policymaking process.
