About Us

The Research Unit for Political Economy (R.U.P.E.), located in Mumbai (Bombay), India, is constituted under the People's Research Trust, which is a registered public trust. The R.U.P.E. runs on voluntary labour and limited finances raised from personal contributions. It is not affiliated to any other body.

The Research Unit for Political Economy is concerned with analysing, at the theoretical and empirical levels, various aspects of the economic life of India and its institutions. It aims to compile, analyse, and present information and statistics so as to enable people to understand the actual mechanics of their every day economic life. And, in this, it aims to take the assistance and insights of people engaged in every sphere of productive work and society.

The R.U.P.E. publishes Aspects of India's Economy, a journal which aims to explain day-to-day issues of Indian economic life in terms that can easily be understood, and to link them with the nature of the country's political economy. Aspects has no fixed periodicity, but about three issues appear a year. Subscriptions are thus for a particular number of issues, not months/years.

Subscriptions
The subscription for four issues is Rs 60/- for India, $11 US for those abroad. Subscriptions are accepted for up to 12 issues at a time. The current issue may be purchased alone for $3 US per copy.

Those who wish to subscribe, or to order copies of the current issue, should send demand drafts or money orders to the following address:

Research Unit for Political Economy, Ground floor, Sidhwa Estate, N.A. Sawant Marg, Colaba, Mumbai (Bombay), India 400005.

Translations of Aspects
We thank all those who have taken great pains to translate Aspects into various languages.

Please note: Those who wish to publish translations of the whole or substantial parts of Aspects should approach R.U.P.E. for permission. Almost always we do grant permission, for we are eager that the content receive the widest possible circulation. However, we reserve the right to deny permission to any publisher regarding whom we have reservations (for example, funded non-governmental organisations). Secondly, there is a practical problem: If we have already granted someone permission to publish a translation in a particular language, or if we are carrying out the translation/publication ourselves, the appearance of a second, unauthorised translation might make it difficult for the authorised publishers to sell their copies.

The following translations of Aspects are available in print or electronic form.
