In an increasingly globalised world, where diverse stakeholders interact within and across borders, different levels of transparency in different systems pose a challenge to effective engagement especially in the economic sphere. India’s democratic polity, liberalising economy, its institutions, and increasingly conscious civil society are interacting to create a greater demand for transparency than ever before.
