Apart from being a state with a good track record in adopting progressive policies and measures to improve human development in the state, Karnataka (and its predecessor, the Principality of Mysore) has been at the forefront of promoting the digital revolution in India through visionary policies that were much ahead of its time. Vidhi Karnataka has therefore been set up to work on issues that affect the lives and livelihoods of the people of Karnataka, in acknowledgment of the fact that in India’s federal system, state governments are empowered to choose their own path of development to better suit the needs of the people of the state.

Vidhi Karnataka has been and will continue to engage with state and local governments, apart from civil society organisations in helping craft better laws and design durable institutions to help realise the constitutional rights and entitlements of the people of Karnataka.
