PPI Turns Two, Thanks To You <3
The Policy Post #94
Editor’s Note ✍️
We started Public Policy India with a single objective - to make policy accessible to all. While our goals have diversified, our mission remains the same. Celebrating our second birthday, this week we’ll be bringing to our community new announcements, giveaways, scholarships to policy programmes and more! Find us on social media (LinkedIn, Instagram, Facebook) to stay tuned!
So far, we’ve announced:
100% Public Policy Scholarship: We’ll be funding Takshashila Institution’s Graduate Certificate in Public Policy (GCPP) programme for a few members of our community. Apply here!
An exclusive PPI Chatroom: We’ve launched our first open community of policy enthusiasts for knowledge exchange on careers, mentorship, opportunities and more. Join it here!
Ask Us Anything: For the first time, the team behind PPI is doing a personal Q&A. Get in on the action here!
With that, we bring you The Policy Post #94
Ask PPI (Almost) Anything! 👌
Giving a twist to this section, the PPI team is doing a personal AMA (Ask Me Anything)! We usually use this section to answer any policy/career related questions you have, but this time we’re looking to answer slightly light-hearted questions.
Check out this post and send in your questions!
This Week’s Policy Focus 🔎
Swachh Bharat Mission: Grameen (SBM-G) Through a Behavioural Lens
Vivek Meshram writes: Sound public policies target the minds of the people. They are there to change the behavior of the public to benefit society. One such well-known policy is “Swacch Bharat Mission – Grameen (SBM-G)”. It had shifted its focus from production outputs (i.e. toilet construction) to behavioral outcomes (open-defecation-free [ODF]).

You won’t believe it, but it’s cheaper than a cup of coffee to support our work☕
We're an entirely community-funded platform with a singular goal in mind - to bring fresh policy insights to our readers, create career opportunities, and help thousands more build thriving careers in the policy space in India.
For it to happen without anyone having to pay for it and for all of our work to remain freely accessible, do consider buying us a coffee (or two!). Contribute as little as Rs. 75 and help us sustain our work and grow it in the times to come. Thank you :)
