The South Asian Bureau of Economic Research (SABER) builds on the success of the East Asian Bureau of Economic Research (EABER) in creating a forum for high-quality economic research focusing on issues facing the economies of South Asia and economic interaction between South and East Asia. It comprises representatives from Bangladesh, India, Nepal, Pakistan, Sri Lanka and Australia. The rapid development of the South Asian economies, the growth of regional and intra-regional trade, financial and other economic interaction, and South Asia's increasing role in the global economy all underline the need for access to a vastly increased range of quality economic analysis on South Asia. SABER, like EABER, is a portal for research on South Asian Economics and houses a collection of research papers from all its member institutes available in the categories at the top of this page. For more information on SABER funding, support and purpose, see About SABER.

It has been over three months since the November 2016 surprise demonetisation of 86 per cent of India’s currency in circulation. The short-run costs of the measure are becoming clearer. India’s industrial production sector, for instance, has been hit hard with negative growth in December 2016. Overall, the aggregate growth cost of the demonetisation measure is expected to be up to 1 per cent of GDP.
