He has worked on various national large scale projects in health, nutrition, water and sanitation and hygiene services among others.

Raj Sharma (pictured, left), chairman of MRSS India, said: “From the time MRSS has got success in the B3G space, we have been eyeing the social market research space. We could have either acquired a specialist firm or a specialist leader and we went for the latter. We strongly believe that this step will result in significant revenues for us in the coming years.”
