Prof. Rafiq Dossani, Asia Pacific Research Center, Stanford University, and L.K. Singhvi, Senior Executive Director, SEBI and Member Secretary of the Committee,  went beyond their call of duty as  committee members and co-ordinated the entire process of interaction between the Silicon Valley and Mumbai.  But for their active involvement and efforts it would not have been possible to finalise this report in a comprehensive manner within such a short time.
