IIPM Think Tank, an independent, interdisciplinary and India-centric research body, is inspired by Dr. M.K. Chaudhuri’s vision of India as an economic powerhouse in the 21st century; a modern nation state where poverty becomes history and the underprivileged are not consigned to the dustbin of amnesia. The national presence (across seven nodes, New Delhi, Mumbai, Chennai, Pune, Bangalore, Hyderabad, and Ahmedabad) makes our understanding of the economy superior achieve considerable influence as a catalyst, bringing together and deploying the skills of an extensive network of experts, where in many research fellows, research associates, research assistants and program coordinators embark on research assignments and network with global intelligentsia that we built up over many years. Politically independent and non-profit, we promote developmental ideas through research reports, development reviews, briefings, seminars, media appearances and website. It aims to develop future ideas and interventions, which are both politically practicable and economically feasible and its work is addressed primarily to government officials and legislators, researchers and students, business executives, professionals, journalists, and all citizens interested in a serious understanding of government policy, the economy, and all other important socio-political developments.
