“Lokneeti – as the name suggests “Lok” means संसार (for public), “neeti” means Policies सरकार की नीतियां, a programme taught us an understanding of the thin line between the duties, roles, and responsibilities of “Sarkar” (Government), “Samaaj” (Communities/NGO) and “Bazaar” (Industry). All this understanding is possible by dynamic and dedicated professors of ISPP who are committed to developing the intellect of scholars of Lokneeti as perfect match for the future need of policymakers and think-tankers.”
