A panel discussion with Viral Acharya, Chanda Kochhar, Anand Mahindra, and Rakesh Mohan followed.

About the book:

What kind of economic reforms were carried out in 1991 and how did they affect the country? What were our expectations then, and what has been achieved or not since? “India Transformed: 25 Years of Economic Reforms” is the ultimate compendium on the 1991 reforms and a celebration of the luminaries who have been a part of this journey.
