A recent policy paper titled “Innovating India Roadmap 2014-19” was released in early this year by the Pune International Centre, a Think Tank based in Pune. In this paper, the focus is on many ???Big Ideas??? across various sectors that will yield positive, tangible and large development gains to the country. The target of this paper is to promote rapid growth, equity and quality of life, eschewing competitive populism.? PIC???s policy proposals do not mean a diminished role for the State.? On the contrary, the proposed reforms are towards fostering a governance system imbued with liberal values, committed to democratic decentralisation, capable of supplying of quality public goods and promoting competition with a regulatory architecture for better oversight of the private sector. Such governance would also provide an effective social safety net and justice for all. The discussion will delve into the nuances of this paper, bringing in different perspectives on the topic.
