The Congressional Research Service (CRS) is the public policy research arm of the United States Congress. As a legislative branch agency within the Library of Congress, CRS works exclusively and directly for Members of Congress, their Committees and staff on a confidential, nonpartisan basis. Since yesterday, there have been a flurry of reports in Indian media about the latest CRS report, on India, titled India: Domestic Issues, Strategic Dynamics,and U.S. Relations.

A persual of the report would indicate that it is based not on any field work but almost entirely on collation of open-source material, mainly news and even op-ed articles in Indian media, referenced in the footnotes. However, given the interest this report — particularly the analyses in the chapter titled India Domestic Policy Setting (page 38 to 48) has generated in some sections —we thought of making it available in full for our readers and it appears here courtesy www.fas.org
