Book synopsis/description:

Lobbying is a dirty word in India! And, yet, lobbying is practiced by many a company - even the most venerated ones. Policy-making continues to be influenced for one's own gain as well as, at times, for the 'public good', at large. At times, a financial arrangement is made for the work being carried out, but in the general perception, corruption has come to be closely associated with lobbying. Is this really so? Influencing India: Lobbying in the World's largest Democracy comprehensively looks at 'influence peddling' activity in India, both from the theoretical politico-economic perspective (Public Choice versus Rent Seeking) as well as the actual rent-seeking occurrences. The book also places the evolution of lobbying in India and in the context of how lobbying evolved in the United States of America and has live examples of efforts/issues by lobbyists, both individuals and institutions, that have shaped policy-making in India.
