This is a copy of recommendations for an Indian National IPR Policy,
written by the "IP Think Tank," which was constituted by the Department of
Industrial Policy & Promotion(DIPP), Ministry of Commerce and Industry,
Government of India. A copy scanned from a hard copy is here:

The members of the IPR Think Tank were:

Justice Prabha Sridevan (Retd) - Chairperson
Mrs. Prathiba M. Singh, Senior Advocate - Member
Mr. Narendra K. Sabharwal - Member & Convener
Ms. Punita Bhargava, Advocate - Member
Mr. Rajeev Srinivasan - Member
Dr. Unnat P. Pandit – Member

Overall, the document is disappointing, featuring for the most part
different ways to promote intellectual property within India, and avoiding
analysis and debate over the most important and consequential issues about
patents, copyrights and other intellectual property rights. India, like all
other countries, would benefit from an empirically rich and thoughtful
analysis of patent and copyright policies, but they won't find it here.
