Overview: Public Institutions in India: Performance and Design

This volume analytically assesses the design, performance, and adaptability of the principal institutions of governance in India and their critical role in a democratic polity. It is axiomatic that societies are well governed and well organized to the extent that their public institutions can adequately manage the demands imposed on them. In India, it is commonly held that a modest record in development and governance is explained by the somewhat limited utility of many public institutions. The volume looks at the Parliament, Presidency, institutions of internal accountability, the Judiciary, Police, and the Civil Service in addition to economic institutions such as the Reserve Bank of India, as also several regulatory bodies, paying special attention to the variables like autonomy, accountability, and information-sharing that have affected the perf ormance of different institutions across time. Also included are essays that explore the critical role played by institutions in enhancing economic performance, strengthening federalism, and deepening the democratic impulse in India. In addition, they look at how electoral uncertainty has given a new lease of life to 'referee institutions' like the Election Commission and the Supreme Court. Further, the volume looks at the variations in institutional performance of the Indian state across time, and evaluates if the state has the capacity to adapt to a changing environment.

  1.  Public institution in india 1 April, 2014 On Junglee.com
    Well, to clear at the start, my purpose is UPSC. I came across this book on a friend's recommendation and found it suited for me. Since the new mains syllabus expects the students to grasp the technicalities of citizen-institution nexus in promoting development and growth. This book does the same by identifying an institution's cultural and behavioral patterns in the past thereby predicting the future course of ideas that can be build upon. It gives you a perspective on how to develop your own perspective on the academic study of institution as the focal point of developmental studies, thus, sidelining the state focus concept. This gives the book a more goal oriented and effective feel. I found it quite helpful in my Mains General Studies paper this year along with Public Administration optional. But Sociology, Anthropology students will also find it useful. You need to have this book with you to understand what I actually mean. Last word of advice to the Flipkart. Though, you've become a bit costlier than market, but you make that up with your quality service. Five stars for the book. Taking two stars for the larger cost than market, and giving one star of that two for the quality service, all adding upto 4 stars Thank you!
