6th March 2023

The Governing Board of the Centre for Policy Research (CPR) expresses its full confidence in its President, Yamini Aiyar. It recognizes her immense contribution to leading CPR’s policy research. Ms. Aiyar has lived up to the Board’s expectations and has led with professionalism, integrity, and rare distinction.

The appointment of Ms. Aiyar by the Board followed a transparent, rigorously comprehensive and robust process to select the best professional talent based on merit and track record to head CPR which has enjoyed a well-earned reputation as an independent, non-partisan institution that holds itself to the highest standards of probity and academic excellence.

The Board has noted with concern some personal, unbecoming, and misleading media references to Yamini Aiyar, that by implication seek to undermine the stature of CPR as an independent, non-partisan, and widely respected organization.
