After its registration as an autonomous society on November 14, 1986 and as a public trust in January 15,1987, then Prime Minister, Shri Rajiv Gandhi inaugurated the campus at Goregaon on December 28, 1987. Subsequently, the Institute was recognized as a Deemed University under Section 3 of the UGC Act and it has the highest National Assessment and Accreditation Council ( NAAC ) rating of A++ ( under the old methodology ) given to Indian academic institutions. At present the Institute has about 120 employees and M.Phil / Ph.D students that include about 30 full time faculty members, 24 non – academic staff and about 60 M.Phil / Ph.D. students.

Starting as a purely research institution, the Institute quickly developed into a full – fledged teaching cum research organisation when in 1990 it launched a Ph.D. program in the field of development studies.

The objective of the Ph.D. program is to produce analysts with diverse disciplinary background who can address issues of economics, energy and environment policies. In 1995 an M. Phil program was also started. The institute is fully funded by the Reserve Bank of India.
