ThinkNiti is an independent, non-profit non-governmental organization that aims to redefine the way in which laws and policies are drafted in India.

There often exists a lacuna in the way in which policies are framed and the objectives they seek to achieve. This problem is grave because most public policies in countries like India are aimed towards social causes like poverty alleviation, education, basic healthcare, social justice and empowerment of weaker sections of the society. Failure to frame such policies and laws effectively leads to wastage of time, money as well as resources. Therefore, ThinkNiti seeks to bridge this gap by providing research and drafting support at various stages of law-making. In addition, we seek to conduct and disseminate independent research in areas of legal reform that is crucial to India’s future.

ThinkNiti believes in bringing about social change through public policy. We look at existing laws in the wider social context through grass root interaction with communities that would enable an effective implementation.  And we believe that to turn policy into practice, it’s vital to engage in meaningful association with policy and opinion leaders through pilot projects, advocacy and in-depth empirical research.

We at ThinkNiti aim to help policy makers and legislators in ensuring that they touch the lives of the people they intend to reach. This is only possible with effective formulation and execution of stronger policies and laws. This is where members of ThinkNiti use their expertise and skills to attain intended results.
