Came across this new site and organization that is trying to promote legislative debate within the country. I think it is worth reading and following. Basically, we are looking at democratic tools that were hitherto in the US – which ensure the checks and balances – being implanted in India. Wider and informed debate can only improve the inherent strength of the democracy and legislations within India. Great work guy!!
Parliamentary Research Service (PRS) is an independent, not-for-profit initiative that seeks to promote wider debate on upcoming legislative issues in Parliament. PRS seeks to promote good governance in India through supporting a transparent, better informed, and participatory legislative process. The work of PRS is collaborative and seeks to complement existing expertise in government, research institutions, business and citizen sector. PRS aims to
– Provide timely, easy-to-use and balanced analysis on upcoming legislative issues.
– Facilitate interaction of experts with those who seek a deeper understanding of legislative issues.
– Inform the larger public of the legislative issues being debated in Parliament and develop platforms for their opinions to be expressed.
PRS is being incubated by the Centre for Policy Research, New Delhi, which is an autonomous institution with the objective of studying major policy issues before the nation and suggesting alternative policy options.
