 Regional Centre, Bengaluru, Karnataka
In response to the felt need for carrying out research and activism in the field of decentralisation and local governance in Southern Region, the Bengaluru Centre was set up in 1993. Since Karnataka was considered to be the pioneer in decentralisation, it was felt that the state capital would be an appropriate place to carry out research activities of the southern region. The centre started functioning with a major study on the functioning of local governance in the southern states of Kerala, Karnataka, and Tamil Nadu. Ever since its inception, in addition to its research activities, the centre has been regularly engaged in conducting training programmes, workshops, conferences, and seminars. The Centre’s presence is felt in government as well as voluntary sectors of the State. Some of the major research work completed at the Centre includes: Election Process and Issues in the Karnataka Panchayati Raj Elections – 1993 and 1995; and An Overview of Panchayati Raj Elections, Karnataka – 2000. The ongoing projects of the Centre includes: Professional Support Services Consultancy to The Saakshar Bharath Mission Project, Karnataka State Literacy Mission Authority, Government of Karnataka, Bangalore; Plan India: Conducting Trainings and Undertaking Publicity Measures for improvement of Birth Registration System in Karnataka; and Evaluation of Morarji Desai Residential Schools for Backward Classes in Karnataka.

Dr. K. Subha is coordinating the activities of the Bengaluru Centre.
