Vision and Foresight - Founded as Defence Affairs Study Centre soon after the India Pakistan war 1971 in realisation of the importance of defence preparedness in all its aspect. It was visionary because very little attention was paid to this subject. It was not until our nuclear tests of may 1998, that the country has realised the importance of these issues.
An independently funded organisation, the centre retains its independence of thought and action on defence issues and thereby meaningfully contributes to defence policy making,whilst providing support in other areas of its interest.
Towards this end the Kunzru Centre has a comprehensive mandate to take necessary steps for the achievement of its objectives. The Kunzru Centre Memorandum of Association states that:

"With the sole purpose of carrying out the foregoing object, the Centre shall have vested in it the authority and power:
a. to establish relations with persons, associations, institutions and also government departments having aims and objects similar to those of the Centre, both in and outside India so as to exchange ideas and generally to promote mutual liaison;
b. to initiate and hold meetings, lectures, discussions, seminars, exhibitions and similar functions in connection with the object of the Centre;
c. to prepare, compile and publish information and analytical exposition of problems connected with Defence of India through the media of books, theses, short papers, periodicals and newspapers in English as well as in some selected Indian languages;
d. to encourage students and others proposing to take up research work in Defence topics and topics allied to defence by founding, maintaining and allotting scholarships, endowing prizes or by any other form of support to help them in their work;
e. to assist other institutions, universities and educational establishments with academic and technical information and guidance on defence matters so that their work supplements directly or indirectly the achievement of the object of the Centre;
f. to build up and maintain a comprehensive reference library with books, periodicals, journals and other publications, published in India and abroad".
