Vision and Mission
The VIRC has a vision of a peaceful, progressive and harmonious society in India based on equitable and democratic principles as dreamed of by the framers of the Constitution. It is of the view that at the time of independence, with rich cultural heritage Indian society also inherited evils of communalism, social inequality and gender discriminations. It believes that political democracy and economic development are not going to make India great as long as it suffers from these evils. Therefore, it emphasizes the need to follow the aims and objects of the Constitution of India as enshrined in the Preamble in letter and spirit.
The mission of the VIRC is to contribute through research, publications, debates and other such means for removing social evils and strengthening of democratic institutions. It shall endeavour to find out how and why India suffered in the past and what problems India is facing at present, and to offer constructive suggestions for formulating, implementing and revising various policies, schemes and programmes of government and non-government organisations to make India a better democracy and harmonious society.
