AIEFS is a non-profit academic organization founded in 1975 at Bloomsburg State University, Pennsylvania.
Economists with interest in India felt a need to develop an identity for those involved in scholarly research on Indian
economic and financial issues, to give publicity to their research outcomes and to educate the world at large on the
realities of changing India. AIEFS objectives are to promote interest of the study of Indian Economics and Finance in
its broadest sense, to encourage inquiry into, and analysis of the problems and issues facing the Indian economy and to
facilitate communication and discussion among scholars working towards the above objectives.

AIEFS sponsors sessions at the annual ASSA, Western Economic Association and Eastern Economic Association. It
also holds biennial meetings either in the US or India. First biennial meeting in India was held in collaboration with
Research and Information System for Developing countries (RIS) in June 2011 in Delhi. The 2013 and 2015 biennial
meetings were held in collaboration with Indira Gandhi Institute of Development Research in Mumbai, and the
Central University of Hyderabad respectively. The 2017 biennial meeting has been scheduled to take place at NCDS,
Bhubaneswar, India.

AIEFS brings out Newsletter twice a year fall and in spring. From time to time, AIEFS also publishes edited books
or proceedings of papers presented at ASSA and biennial meetings. In recent years, papers have been published in
