Public Administration in India: The Higher Civil Service
Oxford University Press; New Delhi, India; 2005; 0195672283 / 9780195672282; First Edition; Paperback; New; 
Public administration in India is often synonymous with the role and performance of the Indian Administrative Service (IAS). This book narrates the inception, development, and role of the higher civil services--the IAS and its allied services. It discusses the importance of the civil service and the nature and variety of challenges that a developing democracy offers to civil servants. The volume discusses the strategic positions members of the civil service occupy in all sectors of the government and how they participate in public policy-making. It explores how their decisions infleunce the lives of all sections of society how they execute laws and implement policies and decisions of the government. In addition, it also focuses on the role of the bureaucracy as the accredited adviser to the political executive on policy-making. S R Maheshwari stresses the indispensability of the civil service in a democratic polity like India. The civil service--the action arm of the governme nt--has played a decisive role in assisting with the social and economic development of the country. However, there is today an urgent need for its reoreintation to adapt to several emerging challenges. The book underscores the importance of designing a civil service system that engages more with privatization, strengthening the government's partnership role with private and non-profit organizations. In addition, the volume pays special attention to the selection and training of civil servants, staffing of the top management in government, the differences between the all-India and central services, promotions, conditions of service, and the issue of accountability. The book also examines growing corruption in the bureaucracy and the question of ethics and morality, and how the Union Public Service Commission recruits from among lakhs of applicants. Concluding with an erudite analysis of the report of the Fifth Pay Commission and the committees constituted for Civil Service Reform , this volume will be indispensable to scholars of public administration and training institutions of the civil service, bureaucrats and aspirants to the civil service as also to journalists and informed lay readers.

The Census Administration Under The Raj and After
Concept Publishing Company Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 1996; 817022585X / 9788170225850; Hardcover; New; New; 
The present work deals with the census in India, which is one of the oldest activities of the Indian Government as also its single largest administrative exercise. Though the census is in existence for more than one hundred years, the present is the first study of its kind. The work traces the beginning of censusing under the British rule and describes, briefly but vividly, the earlier experience-gathering exercise in head-counting before the launching of the first all-India census census in 1881. The first-ever general census is discussed in some detail capturing the contemporary people's perception to this novel and mystery-clad operation. The work examines the role and responsibilities of the census chief executive as also the sprawling field organisation under him with its penetration into the remotest hamlet. While Great Britain discontinued its census in 1941, India conducted it despite its being in the Second World War. This fascinating story is discussed in the work. With political awakening in the country, the census lent itself to linguistic, caste and religious manipulations and these issues are soberly discussed with all the policy implications. Equally analytical is the treatment accorded to the most exotic social institution of India namely caste. Originally a phoenix organization, how census got a permanent organizational base is examined in sufficient detail. Developments in census since Independence (1947) are discussed in the last chapter. The work is comprehensive in its coverage and the style is lucid and interesting. Its academic constituency is public administration, political science, sociology and history. The general reader would find it equally useful. Printed Pages: 227. 112192

The Mandal Commission and Mandalisation: A Critique
Concept Publishing Company Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 1991; 8170223385 / 9788170223382; Hardcover; New; New; 
The present work discusses the public policy of job reservation in the public services under the Government of India, and is particularly focused on the Mandal Commission (The Backward Classes Commission, 1978-80), its reports, the governmental decisions and the social and political implications following from them. To impart a historical perspective, the first Kaka Kalelkar Backward Classes Commission (1953-55) is freely referred to. The work then goes on to examine the major emerging trends. Finally, it makes a few policy recommendations. The book contains the recommendations made by both the Kaka Kalelkar and the Mandal Backward Classes Commissions, which, it is hoped, would further enhance its utility. Printed Pages: 144. 112535
