Sameer Kochhar, Chairman of Skoch Group, is a passionate advocate of social, financial, and digital inclusion. In 1997, after spending 15 years in the corporate world, he decided to follow his inner calling and become a development thinker. Ever since, he single-mindedly applied himself to the rigors of self-education, academic research, and field tours. The Skoch Group – which has a think tank, media, and consultancy arms – was established as part of this endeavor. His expert opinion is sought by the government. In Kochhar’s thinking, writings, and activities, his profound admiration for India’s economic reforms – and in extension, those outstanding personalities who strive to make these reforms more meaningful and broad-based – comes out clear and unambiguous.

In addition to authoring highly acclaimed Speeding Financial Inclusion (2009), he has edited Infrastructure and Governance (2008); Financial Inclusion (2009); Urban Renewal: Policy and Response (2009); India on the Growth Turnpike: Essays in Honour of Vijay L. Kelkar (2010); Building from the Bottom: Infrastructure and Poverty Alleviation (2010); Growth and Finance: Essays in Honour of C. Rangarajan (2011); Policymaking for Indian Planning: Essays in Honour of Montek Singh Ahluwalia (2012); and, An Agenda for India’s Growth: Essays in Honour of P. Chidambaram (2013). Read More..
