All of my job roles till now has given me the exposure to work with governmental agencies and to do advocacy with government officials for local policy formulation and implementation.

My previous job as District Coordinator for Institutional Strengthening of Gram Panchayats Programme under Govt. of West Bengal, funded by World Bank was also crucial to grow my capacity to take responsibility of all over PRI policy formulation and implementation of a whole district while adhering to World Bank guidelines.
