PIF’s “Bharat @100” project aims to capture a wide spectrum of stakeholder perspectives from across India and the Indian diaspora. The goal is to produce a development framework for India to achieve its self-established goals for the next twenty five years. The driving philosophy of “Bharat @100” is that India’s development experience will be better served if all stakeholders converge on a comprehensive Vision for India at 2047, and are focused on addressing the challenges that are identified through wide spread consultations across the country.
