The Policy Post #82
We're back and here's everything that's new!
Editor’s Note ✍️
Hello Hello Hello!
Hope you’ve been keeping well (and hydrated!) It’s been a while and as you’ll shortly see, a lot has changed. Even before we begin - we’re sorry for being AWOL for a while - a huge surge in traffic and a lot of IT struggles later, we’ve everything back up and running again!
Firstly, you’ll now be receiving your weekly Policy Post via Substack! We’ve made some formatting changes to the newsletter as well - you’ll notice as you scroll. However, the intention of this weekly newsletter remains the same - to bring you crisp insights from the world of public policy and governance in India while helping navigate through it as you build a thriving career here!
We’d love to hear from you about the new format of this letter - anything else you want to see featured, what could be better - sky is the limit! Do spread the word and forward it to someone you think might benefit from such a weekly resource? Really helps us out :)
Feel free to write to us, or slide into our DMs here!
With that, we bring you Policy Post #83
