iii) Public Administration Expedition (PAE) - A series of field
enquiries with a diverse scope to understand government policies
across disciplines and departments. The study of civics in the

and create opportunities for focus group engagement with local
bodies and institutions like the Panchayat, State Secretariats,
the Upper and Lower house etc.
