Vijay Anand is a crusader against corruption; as a co-founder and president of 5th Pillar, Anand has sought to empower Indians in tackling corruption at all levels of Indian society.
The Zero Rupee Note project has been one of 5th Pillar’s most successful initiatives, distributing millions of zero-denomination notes as tangible tokens of bribery.
Anand has spoken at the UN’s Convention Against Corruption, services on the board of the National Federation of Indian-American Associations and is also the founder of AIMS India Foundation, dedicated to assisting rural communities with education and healthcare.
