DAKSH is a civil society organisation that undertakes research and activities to promote accountability and better governance in India.
It was founded in 2008 by people from diverse backgrounds, including academicians, entrepreneurs, lawyers, teachers, social and political activists, and ordinary citizens. DAKSH has been working to create inclusive, transparent, self-correcting mechanisms that encourage accountability in all branches of the government.
We study institutions deeply to understand their functioning and identify areas for improvement. We collaborate with several like-minded organisations to benefit from a variety of perspectives and achieve common goals. Our studies and reports are made available to the public through Our website, traditional and social media.
