OUR PATH AHEAD

Our Aspiration: To ensure Bharat@100 is a USD 36 trillion economy, thereby restoring its share in the world economy to 18%, while ensuring balanced regional development, quality employment for all, and a lower carbon footprint.

OUR JOURNEY THUS FAR

Pahle India Foundation’s 10th anniversary is an occasion to celebrate our journey thus far, but also to re-align our purpose to help seize the ‘India Moment’. It is a short window of opportunity for the country to realize its demographic dividend and unlock the productive and innovative potential of its youth cohort. The policies we adopt until the end of this decade will be crucial to achieving India’s aspirations.

History shows us that no country can fulfil its economic aims, pursue its development objectives, realise its geostrategic ambitions, or shape the world order without a homegrown knowledge ecosystem. This is critically needed to aid, abet, and translate the vision of policymakers into action.

However, the Indian social science and public policy-oriented knowledge ecosystem has yet to sufficiently evolve to be able to serve the above purpose. No Indian think tank features in the Top 20 of the 2019 Global Go to Think Tank Index Report, published by the Think Tanks and Civil Societies Program (TTCSP). PIF is committed to building a high-quality, globally-recognized think tank, which will attract the necessary support of Indian philanthropists and the corporate sector.

With its commitment to growing a homegrown knowledge ecosystem rooted in Indian realities, PIF will be able to better serve the policy requirements of government at all levels.

In a dynamic and ever-changing world, it is imperative to foster trust-based dialogue and consistent feedback between economic agents and policymakers.

VISION

  • To build, nurture and lead a homegrown Indian knowledge ecosystem to support policy formulation and establish a platform for continuous, candid, constructive and trust-based interactions among all relevant stakeholders.

MISSION

PIF aims to address the complex policy challenges on the basis of rigorous empirical research and analysis that is rooted in Indian realities to support India’s economic growth through the following measures:

  • To create an Indian pathway for achieving human development indices for Bharat@100 that are comparable to those of developed countries
  • Emerge as a trusted knowledge partner for the industry, civil society, central and state governments on issues of national priority.

  • Conduct rigorous, data-driven and objective research to produce innovative and implementable policy recommendations rooted in Indian realities.

  • Catalyze the public narrative in support of national priorities and the development agenda

  • Focus on the last mile for creating trust-based dialogue between economic agents (firms, entrepreneurs, and innovators) and policymakers (political leadership, bureaucracy and the judiciary).

  • Build an enabling environment for attracting and retaining top talent from the public policy domain from within India and from the Indian diaspora abroad.

  • Strengthen ties with the global Indian diaspora to enable them to contribute to India’s growth story in multiple ways.

FOCUS AREA

Over the past decade, PIF has been able to carve out a niche for itself and earn a reputation with policymakers as an independent and credible institute that can be relied upon for producing evidence-based and analytically-sound high-quality inputs for policy formulation.

In the coming years, PIF aims to focus its policy research and advocacy efforts in priority areas, which we believe are critical for accelerating our economic growth that is inclusive and sustainable. We believe that this is the necessary condition for building comprehensive national power.
