The Indian Liberal Group was a think tank founded in 1964 by Minoo Masani, to promote the liberal point of view and educate the public on the concept of libertarianism and defend the fundamental values. The framework for establishing basic principles as the guidelines for action for the ILG was instituted and adopted on 5th March 2002. The emphasis was laid on rationalism and educating people about libertarianism. According to the liberal group, five matters were highlighted that ranged from the importance of freedom of the press, a threat to personal liberty, resorting to extreme violence followed by the criminalization of politics that led to the prevalent corruption. The guidelines for action also focused on the importance of the right to information and its immediate need for its safeguard. The principles also included economic prosperity through freedom guided through the advent of competition, efficiency, and free enterprise. Technology and development is another stand ILG believed in. The guidelines further highlighted the purpose of society and state to assure individual freedom through proper governance and curbing social issues as a whole.
