Vidhi Maharashtra was established in 2020 to address legal reform at the state level in Maharashtra.
Maharashtra is the second most populated state in the country and the largest contributor to the country’s GDP. Keeping in mind Maharashtra’s important position, the need for a conversation on legal reform in the State is imperative.
Vidhi Maharashtra will engage with state and local governments and civil society organisations to create ideas for legal reform that form part of public debate, academic discussion and civil society engagement leading eventually to stronger communities based on strengthened systems. Our aim, as always, remains better laws through better governance.
