Are electricity subsidies working for the poor in India? Who really benefits from government support? And how can we make the system more fair?

An upcoming study from the International Institute for Sustainable Development, based on a survey of over 900 households in Jharkhand, answers all these questions and more. On September 30, join the authors for a launch webinar and media roundtable to learn more about their critical new findings.

People across India have been hit hard by the economic shock of COVID-19. It is more pressing than ever to ask: are the right people receiving government support? And could we do a better job at focusing support on the people who really need help the most?
