‘Issues for Parliamentarians’ (Issue Note) is a research-based brief policy paper aimed to facilitate informed discussions among Indian Parliamentarians on key economic issues. It carries a key mantra ‘Good Economics is Good Politics’ in order for the MPs to appreciate that economic growth of the country is the sum and substance of good politics. Each issue covers a specific economic topic that has a greater bearing on the lives of the people, and is explained after thorough research and consultations.
Commenting on one of the ‘Issues for Parliamentarians’, one of the MPs wrote: “?It is indeed very kind of you to have sent me the same, which I find very interesting and useful. I would like to take this opportunity to convey my congratulations and best wishes”.
