Linking informal innovations, diffusion and sustainability: evidence from India



This study tries to bridge empirical gaps in the conceptualisation of innovations at grassroots with the application of both empirical and theoretical methods. The informal economy in India employs most of the population who suffer from various forms of hardship. Informal innovation is the important instrument to solve such problems in these regions, where the appropriate solution is not developed by the governing instrument or private agencies (market) in general with various forms of value creation.
