Development Sector

We cover entire development sector including education, health, poverty, financial inclusion as well as including development. One of our major focus is to understand inequalities in accessibility of social infrastructure and their resultant impact on inclusive development. Our studies involving indexations help in understanding these concerns in greater details over space and by other characteristics of population in the country. Along with these, we do undertake Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) related studies with the help of robust impact assessment tools.
