Construct an extraordinary public policy

About the event

The public policies in our country is full of paradoxes majorly filled with failures in measuring and evaluating the impact and reactions beforehand and eventually impeding development. One of the reasons could be the empty spaces between management education and public administration. Hence bridging the existing voids in implementation is the need of the hour. Changemakers, the public policy competition at Eximius 2017, gives an unique opportunity to explore, debate and put forth your views on what challenges an Indian citizen faces today and construct a feasible public policy for the same. Bring forward your thoughts to the arena and compete with top minds in the country.
