Launch of the Report on Doing Business in Delhi

Date: 30th October, 2018
Venue: PHD Chamber of Commerce and Industry

We launched a compendium on Doing Business in Delhi, at a panel discussion on the theme held on 30th October. An outcome of the 18th edition of our Researching Reality Internship, the report explores the complex regulations and policy bottlenecks that continue to thwart enterprise, with a particular focus on the implementation of the Ease of Doing Business reforms in the state of Delhi.

The comprehensive compendium consists of seven research papers which address themes such as business reforms in the restaurant industry, a study of how aggregators are challenging the regulatory structure and functioning of commercial courts, among others. The roundtable discussion was moderated by Bhuvana Anand, Governance and Public Policy Specialist, and was attended by industry representatives and policy experts including Dr Parth Shah, President, Centre for Civil Society; Kadambari Shah, IDFC Institute; Prashant Narang, Advocate, Supreme Court of India; and Shubho Roy, National Institute of Public Finance and Policy (NIPFP) among others.

Researching Reality Internship is a six-week, full-time summer research internship program for students. The internship provides a hands-on experience in research and to the application of social and economic principles in to governance and public policy.
