PIF is a not-for-profit policy think tank, established in June 2013 by Dr. Rajiv Kumar. It is a Section 8 company duly certified under the FCRA.
At PIF, we undertake analytical research and disseminate its findings both to policy makers and in the public domain. The driving vision in all that we do is “Putting India First to make India First.” PIF’s aim is to emerge as a credible, trustworthy and neutral platform to bring together various economic agents like firms, farmers, academics, professionals and civil society on the one hand, and policy makers on the other. The idea is to create the necessary synergies and trust between the principle stakeholders viz government, industry, academia and civil society. We consider this to be a key condition for ensuring India’s success in global markets and to put the Indian economy on a higher growth trajectory while generating high quality employment and improving equity.
PIF currently has an analytically strong team of dedicated researchers who are self-motivated. Our team specialises in analyzing India’s political economy and its engagement across verticals that are relatively underworked areas. Over the last 10 years we have been successful in creating a niche for PIF in the research and think tank space in the country.
