CCS DashboardLaunch of at the South Asia Students For Liberty Conference, 17 January 2015, 5-6pm

Arun ShourieThe IndianLiberals project is the the creation of an online library of all Indian liberal writings, lectures and other materials in English and other Indian regional languages. The material that has been collected so far contains liberal commentary dating from the early 19th century till the present. It is this content that we hope to preserve and disseminate, to build awareness about our rich liberal tradition which has over time been suppressed or forgotten. After 18 months of research and archiving, we are launching the portal at the inaugural South Asia Students For Liberty Conference. Arun Shourie, prominent journalist, author and politician, has very kindly agreed to do the formal launch.

ViewPoint 14: Denationalisation of Banking in India

ViewPoint 14: Denationalisation of Banking in IndiaThis paper is an attempt to demonstrate both the obvious and implicit costs to the economy, of India’s government-owned banking model. Using research findings of other scholars, the paper also demonstrates that the so-called social or national objectives have not been achieved even after more than 40 years of India’s experiment with nationalisation of the sector, despite the huge amount of money paid by Indian taxpayers all this time. The paper concludes by calling for an immediate denationalisation of Public Sector Banks in India (PSBs). Download here.
