Public policy does not make for popular literature. However, it is invaluable for a country’s growth and development. Almost 30-40 books on public policy are published every year. Serious public policy issues hardly get any place in the literature festivals that are routinely organised. SKOCH Public Policy LITFest endeavours to bring public policy literature to the forefront of public discourse and decision making. Eminent public policy writers, policymakers and practitioners come together to brainstorm on how to make the public policy literature contribute towards decision making for New India.

SKOCH Awards are extremely coveted and are considered India’s Highest Independent Honour and amongst its recipients have included regulators, secretaries, union ministers and chief ministers over its twenty year or so long history.
