The Nanda Talukdar Foundation has regularly been commissioned by the SIRD, CAPART, CBTC and World Bank to carry out independent evaluation of their work in Assam. Only recently the NTF completed an exhaustive study on the SHG movement of Rural Assam covering 15 districts of the state spending almost nine months. A 300 page book ?the SHG- The Real Story?have been published by the Foundation as the final result of the study.?Again to popularize tourism, a three book series called ?Bhraman?was also published.

The state has seen too much of negative thing over the years but there are small but beautiful stories of success both through formal and informal micro credit. pictures Their success has been overshadowed by the glomming dark cloud of insurgency. The NTF took it as challenge, tracked down 24 such persons of the Brahmaputra valley, spent one week each with them and came out with a book called ?Mon Korilei Son? The book has been widely appreciated. The idea is to use to disseminate the positive information. Further to revive the dying habit of reading amongst the non serious readers, the Foundation in collaboration with Children Literary Trust, Assam, published three volumes of Jonbai and three volumes of travel handbook of India.
