Abstract: 

The euphoria of India as a regional power has been dented by talk of systemic corruption, poor public services, nagging problems of unemployment, illiteracy and poverty and demographic challenges. Establishing a strong sense of credibility in government and the development of adequate capacity for enforcement must also be addressed to ensure the success of India’s efforts. New initiatives in collective action and local networks of organizations can build trust and a stronger culture of accountability between business and government. This report highlights the tangible progress that has been made in this direction and develops a road map to a more transparent, inclusive and accountable environment.
