NCAER, NIPFP, Brookings get Rs 16-cr grant from Omidyar Network for research on property rights

Omidyar Network India Tuesday said it will provide Rs 16 crore (USD 2.3 million) grant to Brookings India, NCAER and NIPFP to conduct research on issues related to property rights in the country. The grant would be utilised to create a multi-organisation research consortium that will focus on issues linked to secure rights to assets, Omidyar Network said in a statement. The Rs 16-crore fund includes an innovation fund of Rs 3.5 crore (USD 500,000) to back proposals from across the country. Brookings India, National Council of Applied Economic Research (NCAER) and National Institute of Public Finance Policy (NIPFP) would develop evidence-based solutions to address chronic challenges in providing secure access to land, housing and property rights . Omidyar Network India is part of a global network funded by the philanthropic capital of Pierre Omidyar, the founder of eBay, and his wife Pam Omidyar. The aim is to have these institutions, and hopefully other collaborators in the future, .
