CPPR once again congratulates the winners of the CPPR-Atlas Public Policy Challenge 2015.

The winners of the CPPR Policy Challenge, Ranjeet Rane and Mathew John, competed against 68 other participants from across India. The 10 top participants were shortlisted for a training workshop in Kochi, Kerala. And after submitting reworked drafts, each emerged as First and Second prize holders respectively.

Ranjeet Rane is an Information Security and research professional and has a PG diploma in Cyber law. Ranjeet’s winning policy brief ‘Store in India’ proposes a National Data Infrastructure Policy (N-DIP) to address structural flaws in India’s data infrastructure. Towards this end, his paper further analyses the existing deficiencies and goes on to argue for a more holistic approach, as opposed to the existing problem solving approach.

Mathew John is at present serving as a legislative assistant to a member of India’s Parliament. By his own admission, Mathew has a keen interest for issues in Public Policy and Diplomacy. He has a BTech from the University of Kerala.  Mathew’s policy brief suggested amendments to the Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances Act (NDPS) in India.

Below are the policy briefs written by the winners
