The Vidhi Centre for Legal Policy started operations in 2013 with a team of five lawyers. Today it is recognised as one India’s leading think-tanks in the policy space. The reports published by the Vidhi Centre are cited widely and have proved instrumental in shaping the public discourse on many areas in need of reform.
