Inception of SCM SPRI

Policy research is a new area of scientific enquiry. Timely assessment of popular reactions on important public policies affecting the masses is essential. Such feedback helps policy makers to restructure or revise their policies and enables them to give a new direction, if needed.  The Institute represents a significant departure from the traditional research methodology and approach. It provides a specialized activity in policy analysis attempting to explore more rational choices and innovative policy alternatives after closely and realistically examining the genesis and sources of policy problems and learning significant lessons from past experience.
