MIT-WPU congratulates Prof. Amit Chatterjee and students from the School of Economics Jai Ram Thappa, Manaswi Kele and Eesha Pendse on publishing their paper, “Will Covid-19 cause rural development? An analysis of the effects of reverse migration” in the Journal of Critical Reviews, Malaysia. Considering the COVID crisis that has engulfed the world, the professor saw fit to understand if it could have any benefit at all for humanity, and if so, then how could we all focus our energies to that benefit so that good may come from these difficult times. This paper was an answer to that. MIT-WPU fosters a research-based culture and prompts students to excel and become visionaries.
