State of Exclusion: Delivery of Government-to-Citizen Cash Transfers in India
Over the past two years, we at the Social Protection Initiative (SPI) at Dvara Research, have been working extensively on building a comprehensive understanding of exclusion. This report benefits greatly from the insights gained from various primary studies, conducted in collaboration with our external partner organisations. We would like to take this opportunity to thank all our external partners for these research engagements. We would like to thank Gram Vaani, Haqdarshak, Centre for Monitoring Indian Economy (CMIE), and India Migration Now, for the intellectual and logistical support that was provided by their off-field and on-field researchers alike. These primary studies have allowed us to take a closer look at the various challenges faced by citizens, in accessing social welfare entitlements and provided the necessary granularity to our analysis.
