Indian Council for Research on International Economic Relations, India

Isher Building — Green Project

Established in 1981 with the goal of providing policy advice to effectively deal with external economic shocks, the Indian Council for Research on International Economic Relations (ICRIER) has grown to become one of India’s most well known independent and informative policy research organisations. Promoting multidisciplinary research at the cutting edge of knowledge creation, ICRIER provides a forum for continuing dialogue among decision makers in government, academia, industry and civil society.

ICRIER’s office campus — The Isher Building — is named after Dr Isher Judge Ahluwalia, ICRIER’s Director and Chief Executive (1998–2002), and subsequently, Chairperson (2005–2020). Dr Ahluwalia was instrumental in shaping ICRIER’s evolution into a globally recognised, top ranked, independent think tank.

Mazumdar Shaw Philanthropy supported the construction of this project, in compliance with TERI’s GRIHA green building norms. Isher Building is energy efficient and environmentally sustainable.

The Isher Building highlights the spirit of ICRIER and our commitment to high quality and impactful research. Its generous spaces balance the twin needs of proximity and privacy for faculty, enabling ICRIER to expand its footprint in research activities. This would not have been possible without the support of donors like Mazumdar Shaw Philanthropy.

Pramod Bhasin, Chairperson, ICRIER
