This report presents the findings of a two-year research project undertaken by the Centre for Internet and Society (CIS) to study the entry of digital platforms in domestic and care work in India. The project was supported by APC as part of the Feminist Internet Research Network, which is funded by the International Development Research Centre (IDRC)

Implemented through 2019-2021, the objective of the project was to use a feminist lens to critique platform modalities and orient platformisation dynamics in radically different, worker-first ways. Ambika Tandon and Aayush Rathi led the research team at CIS, while the Domestic Workers’ Rights Union was a partner in the implementation of the project, as co-researchers.
