Prominent ELSAs from the Department of Economics OUR LEGACY
Our Distinguished Alumna Gita Gopinath is Professor of Economics at Harvard University. She received her Ph.D from Princeton University. When French President François Hollande unveiled a plan in November for a business tax credit and higher sales taxes as a way to revive the economy, he was implementing an idea championed by our very own ELSA. Her strategies for the Euro Zone have been proclaimed very influential
Our Distinguished Alumna Naina Lal Kidwai is currently the Country Head at HSBC India. "I remember my three eventful years in LSR with joy. LSR gave me a firm grounding in Economics which has stood me in good stead till date. An active involvement with debates and plays and inter college events, Student council activities as Secretary and then President of the LSR Students' Union and the friends and relationships cemented through those years comprise the invaluable memories I carry with me. It is great to see the college improve its rankings and position."
Our Distinguished Alumna Vinita Bali is the Managing Director of Britannia Industries Ltd. We take deep pride in recognising her outstanding contribution to the field of business and industry. For her courage in taking up the most challenging ventures and scripting success stories; For her energizing innovativeness in changing business models; For her pioneering spirit that refused to accept the existence of any glass ceiling.
Our Distinguished Alumna Usha Thorat served as Deputy Governor of the Reserve Bank of India from November 10, 2005 to November 8, Prior to this she was the executive Director of the RBI With vast experience in banking and finance her proficiency has been internationally acknowledged.
Our Distinguished Alumna Justice Gita Mittal is a sitting Judge of the Delhi High Court. A student of Economics she was also the President of the College Sports Union. Her landmark judgement in the 1984 Sikh Riots case won her much acclaim from Human Rights organisations around the world and is a true testimony of her courage and legal acumen. Her assertion that, ".....it is the responsibility of the State to safeguard the life and liberty of an individual from mob violence", resulted in several persons injured during the riots getting compensation
Our Distinguished Alumna Anjali Bhardwaj is the founder of Satark Nagrik Sangathan, a Delhi-based citizens' group committed to promoting accountability in government functioning. She believes that the biggest hurdle in the way of effective development is the fact that public funds never reach the intended beneficiaries. Till date, Anjali has succeeded in helping residents of both low-income slum settlements and higher-income colonies access records of several departments like the MCD, Delhi Jal Board, Delhi Police and the DDA.
