Sardar Patel Institute of Economic and Social Research is a leading Social Science Research Institute in India. It is an autonomous organisation registered as a Trust and Society under the relevant statutes in 1965. With the valuable cooperation of the Gujarat Government, businessmen, and industrialists of Gujarat, the Institute started academic activities in 1969 with Prof. D.T. Lakdawala as its founder Director. Appreciating the role of such an institution of higher learning and research in Gujarat, the Gujarat government had given full maintenance grant during the initial years of the Institute’s development. By the mid-seventies, the Institute established its unique identity at the national level. Government of India recognised it as a National Institute in 1975 and, consequently, the Indian Council of Social Science Research (ICSSR), New Delhi, started sharing the maintenance grant on a 50:50 basis. Organizing Seminars, Conferences and Workshops at the Institute and participation by the research staff of the Institute at regional, national, and international level are the other important facets of the working of the Institute. Faculty members of the Institute have been appointed to various committees of the Government of India and Gujarat, Planning Commission, Universities, Reserve Bank of India, and international agencies like UNCTAD, World Bank and International Monetary Fund.
