The Institute proposes to raise Rs. 755 crore for infrastructure development, fellowships, research and field action projects. On legal and ethical considerations, the Institute sought approval from its Governing Board to initiate partnership negotiations and accept support from public/private sector enterprises, corporate organisations, alumni, good samaritans, high net worth individuals, banks, trusts and foundations in ways that will benefit and recognise the supporting companies, while enabling the Institute to better achieve its mission without compromising its principles.
