Rakesh Raman – who is the founder the humanitarian organization RMN Foundation – has planned to start a comprehensive research project to compile an exclusive report on corruption in India. The new report will be a sequel to the research report that he had compiled and released in July 2018.
The project begins in October 2018 and it will take almost 4 months to complete it. The report will carry detailed information on corruption including data, interviews, and case studies from primary as well as secondary sources.
Individuals, organizations, students, educational institutions, volunteers, and other professionals are invited to collaborate in the project.
The unique selling proposition (USP) of this report will be to sensitize different stakeholders in India and abroad about the limitations of the Indian governments in deploying information-driven processes to deal with corruption, although it will also cover traditional aspects.
Working Title: India Corruption Research Report 2019 (ICRR 2019)
Collaboration: The research project is being carried out in collaboration with the Centre for Transparency and Accountability in Governance (CTAG), National Law University, Delhi.
Expected Release: The research report was expected to be released in January 2019.
Note: The project period is being extended from January 2019 as RMN Foundation could not get resources (financial as well as personpower) to carry out the research project. The new release date of the report will be announced if RMN Foundation gets sufficient support from donors and contributors.
