A group of professionals, mainly development specialists, from Kerala settled in Delhi joined hands for creating a professional forum in Delhi. The major objectives of the forum were to deliberate on various development issues of Kerala and other Indian states and to establish an organization to promote high human development indices among various states. The forum was coordinated by Dr.Jacob John, an economist with a long experience working with national and international organizations. In the first phase of the activities, the forum organized a series of seminars, workshops and training programmes. Eventually the forum was transformed into a professional organization.
