This book provides a comprehensive overview of India’s public services and bureaucratic systems, and explores why widespread corruption and inefficient delivery have slowed development. It:
- discusses the underlying reasons for the prevailing inefficiency in public services;
- examines the complex linkages between ethics-based public service, India’s cultural and spiritual heritage, and its current economic development model; and
- outlines ways to create an ethics code and an environment that is conducive to better administration and good governance.
Lucid, accessible, and meticulously researched, this will prove essential to scholars and students of public administration, governance studies and political science, particularly bureaucrats, policy-makers and civil service aspirants.
