Anubhav Mangal – “The responsibilities gave me an incredibly well rounded & holistic experience and helped me grow immensely as a professional”
Coming from an established company with well-defined roles and expectations, I experienced a massive change while working at PPID.
As the set-up of the PPID is similar to that of a start-up, I have worked less like a project manager and more like a start-up founder.
From developing business with a new a client to hiring & staffing team on projects, I got the exposure of it all. These responsibilities gave me an
incredibly well rounded & holistic experience and helped me grow immensely as a professional.

Bhavna Nahata –“I actively participate in the improvement of public services of our country and have a direct impact on it”
I joined PPID primarily to create an impact. QCI offered me the opportunity to work on projects where we recommend
systematic reforms to reduce public grievances, thereby impacting quality of citizens’ lives in India. As a team member of PPID at QCI, I actively participate in the improvement of public services of our country and have a direct impact on it. The flat structure
has given me the opportunity to be creative and yet solve the issues at large.

PPID is an ideal platform to reach out to leaders across the government. While working at PPID in QCI, I directly interacted with
various senior bureaucrats in the administration and improved public services by filling gaps both in policy and implementation. Working on public services made me

PPID has a unique team not just because of its flat structure but because of the diverse background everyone comes from. There is a free exchange
of learning. Everyone is open to feedback and I’ve felt that the conversations here are crisp and concise. There is a sense of camaraderie, which I’ve felt is special.

Vinay Sridhar –“The fact that I could drive and actively work towards shaping the services of our country was overwhelming for me”
I joined PPID in June of 2015. If I had to relate any one incident on how this place shaped my affinity towards being a
part of impacting the governance of this country, it would be of my involvement with the DARPG project wherein we recommended systematic reforms
to improve quality of public services. I was a part of this project last year, and the data we compiled and analyzed was used to a great degree
by Joint Secretaries from various ministries. This was overwhelming to me, just the fact that I could drive and actively work towards shaping our
Country. That’s when I knew that this is what I wanted to do, and the PPID helped me realize that.
