Analysis of Experience In my twenty-five years of service, I have been exposed to varied experiences each of which helped me professionally as well as personally. The experience prepared me for undertaking policy oriented research dealing into the issues and problems of Urban Development, Urban Finance, Urban Planning and Management. I have had the opportunity to work in the professional field. I have worked as Assistant Town Planner in the State Government of Uttar Pradesh. An important aspect of this work was to prepare integrated urban development projects and interaction with urban local bodies in terms of planning & management of urban area. Forth last twenty years, I was involved in various development oriented urban research projects including Reducing Poverty in Urban India, Financial Institutional Reforms and Expression (FIRE), Urban Policy & Urban Development Strategy, Institutional Options
