  • Minimum Government and Maximum Governance: Empowering the Impoverished
           Through Digital India Campaign

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Gurram Ashok
      Abstract: Indian Journal of Public Administration, Ahead of Print.
      Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s call for ‘minimum government and maximum governance’ aims at addressing India’s complexity of governance. The poor and marginalised sections are invisible in governance. In overcoming this lacuna, Digital India (with its nine pillars) endeavours for digital empowerment in creating a knowledgeable society where people’s participation in policy formulation and governance of the welfare are given primacy. The minimalist role of governance is to increase people’s engagement in building new India, and Atmanirbhar Bharat (self-reliant India) reflects Mahatma Gandhi’s sarvodaya and Deendayal Upadhyaya’s philosophy of antyodaya (the rise of the last person).

  • Decoding the Changing Role of the Neo-Liberal State in a Globalising
           World: Convergence of Public–Private Partnership in Innovative
           Governance

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Nachiketa Singh
      Abstract: Indian Journal of Public Administration, Ahead of Print.
      Ever since the concept of territorial nation-state occupied the centre stage of global politics, the international community has witnessed different political and economic systems being introduced from time-to-time to cater to the needs of the global community. Since the inception of the Westphalia State System (Treaty of Westphalia 1648), nation states have reinvented themselves and re-imagined their political and economic trajectories to adapt themselves to the changing needs of time and circumstances. In the contemporary international political economy, one finds a paradigm shift towards the convergence of interests between private and public, where the states across the globe are striving to achieve common good and promote public interest by creating a synergy with the private stakeholders. This article aims at decoding the circumstances and explaining the rationale behind the changing role of the state, while redefining its economic strategy and priorities in the era of globalisation. It further tries to examine the areas of convergence and issues of divergence in public–private partnership in pursuit of the goals of development and progress. The conceptual and theoretical underpinnings of the article are conceived around the philosophy of liberalism and democracy, on the one hand, and the institutional framework of free market capitalism, on the other, as envisaged in the doctrine of globalisation.

  • Efficacy of Mid-Day Meal Scheme in India: Challenges and Policy Concerns

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Tattwamasi Paltasingh, Prakash Bhue
      Abstract: Indian Journal of Public Administration, Ahead of Print.
      The Mid-Day Meal Scheme (MDMS) in India is considered to be the world’s largest school meal programme, serving hot cooked meals to the underprivileged children. The ideas behind the introduction of this programme are to remove malnutrition, supplement nutritional foods in school meals, to motivate out-school children towards regular school, to decrease absenteeism and dropout rate, and to bridge inequality among the children irrespective of their caste, class and gender backgrounds. After the enactment of the Right of Children to Free and Compulsory Education Act (RTE), 2009, the programme is being monitored by the School Management Committees. The article intends to highlight the effectiveness of the MDMS in improving schools and the local communities in India. It also focuses on the challenges being confronted with the implementation of the programme and suggests some relevant policy measures for reforms.

  • Innovations in Governance for the Welfare State by Devising a
           Comprehensive Pension Model in the Indian Context

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Arindam Chakrabarty, Anil Kumar Singh
      Abstract: Indian Journal of Public Administration, Ahead of Print.
      A welfare state is committed to the holistic wellbeing of its citizens. These commitments can only be achieved when the state can establish good governance coupled with innovations throughout its administrative ecosystem. The provision of a defined pension has been earmarked as one of the key social security measures. The National Pension System has replaced the erstwhile General Provident Fund (GPF)-led pension in India, shifting from the socialist ideology to a market-driven model. The article suggests a self-reliant and sustainable Contributory Defined Pension System (CDPS) that would address all these concerns and can be extended to the government, PSUs and private sector.

  • Economic Underpinnings of Global Governance and Desired Reforms

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Sharat Kumar
      Abstract: Indian Journal of Public Administration, Ahead of Print.
      The global economy with ‘non-system’ post-Bretton Woods system continues to be fragile. Amongst the major countries of the world, budget deficit of the federal government of the USA has been increasing every year. The leverage to borrow with ease from both internal and external sources places the US federal government in a unique position. This ‘exorbitant privilege’ of the USA to borrow from rest of the world emanates from the US$ being the dominant international currency. This is, in a way, the result of ‘the White Plan’ that got accepted at the Bretton Woods conference (1944). Along with the budget deficit, the US trade deficit has also been growing over the years, particularly so with China and Japan. The counter balancing trade surpluses of China and Japan have been rising with no system in place to rectify such a trade imbalance between these countries. This is indeed not sustainable, and needs reforms in the existing (neo-liberal) world economic order. The article argues that both the G-20 and the IMFC (IMF) may give a fresh look to the proposals of ‘the Keynes Plan’—as enunciated at the Bretton Woods conference for the desired reforms.

           India

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Vinay Kaura, Pratap Singh
      Abstract: Indian Journal of Public Administration, Ahead of Print.
      With China penetrating markets across the world, its influence over the European economies has reached an unprecedented level. Though the European Union (EU) has significant economic presence in many parts of Asia, it has not yet figured prominently in emerging strategic calculations revolving around the Indo-Pacific region. However, the increasingly fraught relationship between the United States and China, coupled with the prospects of slowing global economy, offer the EU member-states with the opportunity to enhance its agency in shaping the geoeconomic and geopolitical future of the Indo-Pacific region. The article argues that the EU is currently undergoing a significant recalibration in its relationship with an authoritarian China even as it faces the challenge of having to balance security imperatives with economic interests and, not least, having to contend with a lack of unity among member-states. The article recommends that the emergence of the Indo-Pacific construct should prompt both the EU and India in enhancing their cooperation to realise the collective vision of a democratic, open and rules-based international order.

  • Does Robust Health Infrastructure Alone Mitigate a Pandemic'
           Comparison of Health Systems and the Pandemic Mitigation in 2020 in Three
           Indian States

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Taz Mazinder Barua
      Abstract: Indian Journal of Public Administration, Ahead of Print.
      The breakout of the Covid-19 global pandemic in India since March 2020 devastated the national economy, disrupted the federal balance of power between the Centre and the State governments, and led to a migrant crisis. In this article, data-derived lessons are drawn from the management of the pandemic at the State government levels. The article yields an answer to whether the availability of health infrastructure singularly affects the effectiveness of the control of the pandemic. This article compares the management of the Covid-19 pandemic by the health systems of the three Indian States of Madhya Pradesh, Delhi and Kerala in the year 2020. Although the response to the outbreak in Kerala was hailed for its more effective arrest of the disease, the response of the Kerala health system was also distinguished by the prior experience in handling viral outbreaks, active community participation in controlling the disease and a proactive mitigation strategy.

  • India’s E-Governance Journey: Looking Through Common Service Centres

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Samar Nanda
      Abstract: Indian Journal of Public Administration, Ahead of Print.
      India has seen unprecedented growth of information technology (IT) lead in governance structures in the past decades. IT-enabled systems have ushered in a new era of digital transformation of traditional ways of functioning of citizen service deliveries in the country. Governance, thus, has found a new meaning through the currency of digital change. Services which earlier were exploited as reserved for privileged and classy people have become available for common citizens without any rent-seeking or exploitation. The most important factor associated with digital transformation is nothing but access to information and transparency. Every service has now a trace, a link and a face, which can be analysed at a later stage to provide the efficacy of the system and certain room for improvement. Having said these, it may not be concluded that there are no challenges and stumbling blocks on the way of e-governance, ‘digital divide’ being the most prominent challenge in the way of bigger mandate to reach out to all the citizens by the state. However, growing Smartphones and falling data rates have enabled substantial part of the citizens to avail digital services rendered by the state. Even though the common service centre has been operating for quite some time efficiently and effectively, some important challenges have been flagged in the article. A glimpse of the best practices from leading countries doing good in e-governance initiatives is also included in the analysis.

      Abstract: Indian Journal of Public Administration, Ahead of Print.
      This study examines the impact of infrastructure, more specifically education, health, and road network infrastructure, on information and communication technology (ICT) penetration in the districts of West Bengal. Besides, the study also investigates the spatial distribution of infrastructure and ICT in the districts of West Bengal. The whole research is based on primary and secondary data. Data have been collected from the District Census and District Statistical Handbooks. The principal component analysis and correlation coefficient techniques are used to assess the impact. The study reveals that the degree of correlation between infrastructure and ICT variables is medium to high, except in some cases. As the Infrastructure Index increases, the ICT index also tends to increase. It is found that a moderate positive relationship (r = 0.503) was found between the infrastructure index and the ICT index. Significant policy regarding basic infrastructure services is of utmost necessity for ICT diffusion within the study region.

  • Revisiting Innovations in Governance

      Authors: Amita Singh
      Abstract: Indian Journal of Public Administration, Ahead of Print.
      Innovations, reforms and reinvention drives are overlapping strategies which arrive during organisational crisis when public sector capacity falls short of addressing a catastrophe. They come as a natural consequence of survival design or a tenacious need to outdo an opponent in a competition. However, some may even come through errors of the past. Innovations shrink both time and budget while becoming an agent for the three ‘Rs’ of recognition, replication and research. Much research, such as studies on administrative innovations at Department of Administrative Reforms and Public Grievances’ (DARPG) best administrative practices research on innovation has been undertaken since the coming of globalisation which brought through a combination of computers and information technology, on one hand, and re-conceptualisation of inter-agency collaboration and network research, on the other. Innovations do not bypass traditional public sector values of equity, fairness and probity to achieve enhanced efficiency as these become elements of sustainability and continuity in them. Government has a role to play in public sector innovations in facilitating freedom to innovate, in generating an environment of scientific curiosity, democratic freedom and decentralised governance. A spirit of entrepreneurship is currently being treated as a gateway to innovations and the mushrooming of startups as unleashing of innovations which may transform the manner in which public administration works in India. However, failed startups set at rest the innovation theory. Innovations need certain essentials for their success and continuity.

      Authors: Gurmeet Kaur
      Abstract: Indian Journal of Public Administration, Ahead of Print.
      Internet crimes against minors is a complex social emerging issue and a matter of concern that needs more attention from the government law enforcement agencies, legislators, parents, educators, intermediaries and over-the-top (OTT) platforms due to the massive increase in the usage of internet and mobile communication technologies. It is seen that relative ease in accessing media has led to an increase in online crimes against teenagers/adolescents having varied dimensions and impact on the victims. The study explores different forms of online crimes faced by teenagers through various online platforms, the potential offenders and the types of technologies deployed by them to commit crimes against minors. The article focuses on analysing existing laws and policies in India to combat cybercrimes against minors. Strategies for the prevention and protection of children against child abuse and exploitation have also been discussed.

      Authors: Anupam Sharma
      Abstract: Indian Journal of Public Administration, Ahead of Print.
      The application of technology has always been a gamechanger. The history of civilisation can be summarised with the adaptation of changing technology. Techno-savvy nations always led the world and expanded their culture beyond their geographical boundaries. The Information and Communication Technology (ICT) Revolution is the latest technological tool. It has rapidly changed the whole scenario—economic, trade or commerce, social and political. Undoubtedly, it has a revolutionary impact. The application of ICT has changed the mode of production and distribution and has helped to create a global market through e-business. The relations of production have also undergone a change. The political milieu, the functioning of political institutions, the decision-making process and the governance, in short, the relationship of governors and governed, is also witnessing tremendous change. In this article, an attempt has been made to analyse the impact of ICT on fostering effective governance.

  • Helicopter Services in India: Evidence from Northeastern States

      Authors: S.N. Tripathi, V.N. Alok, Pradeep Kumar Panda
      Abstract: Indian Journal of Public Administration, Ahead of Print.
      The helicopter service in Northeast (NE) India was introduced in 1992–1993 to provide connectivity to passengers in remote areas of the region and with other states and union territories of India at affordable cost. It also intended to evacuate people during natural calamities and medical emergencies. By the year 2021, the helicopter services were operational in seven NE states, namely, Arunachal Pradesh (1995), Sikkim (1998), Meghalaya (1999), Tripura (2002), Nagaland (2007), Mizoram (2012) and Manipur (2018). The article intends to examine the efficiency and usefulness of the helicopter scheme in the North Eastern Region, to find out the extent to which the scheme has facilitated connectivity for different layers of end-users and to identify the key bottlenecks and challenges faced during the implementation of the scheme. With positivist frame of evaluation, both quantitative and qualitative research methods have been used for data collection and analysis. The study was conducted in seven states, and a total of 384 respondents was sampled. During the period 2016–2017, 2017–2018 and 2018–2019, the budget sanctioned by the Ministry of Home Affairs for the scheme was ₹86 crore, ₹86 crore and ₹90 crore, respectively, which had been fully utilised by the state governments. During 2019–2020, ₹100 crore was sanctioned, and the entire amount was utilised. The budget amount was reduced to ₹42 crore in the year 2020–2021. From 2016–2017 to 2019–2020, the overall efficiency in Northeastern Region was a positive trend; although, it declined in 2018–2019 due to a significant decline in the number of passengers in Nagaland and Sikkim despite a marginal decline in the input variable, that is, number of flying hours. Among the sampled beneficiaries, women’s participation was 22%, SCs represented 24%, and STs and OBCs represented 31% and 12%, respectively. This shows that the scheme is inclusive. In addition, the flying hours were optimally utilised, and scheme catered to the designated objectives.

  • Innovations in Governance: Political Theory, Liberal State and Active
           Democracy

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Sudhanshu Tripathi
      Abstract: Indian Journal of Public Administration, Ahead of Print.
      The article deals with evolution of political theory and state and efforts to activate democracy, especially in the Third World countries still operating in a feudal/monarchic manner, as against liberal/progressive democracies in Anglo-American-Scandinavian countries. This needs to re-energise existing institutions of governance through much-needed innovations, leading to transformations in the respective roles of state, market and civil society to ensure responsibility/accountability, transparency and reduction in fiscal deficit in national economy. While liberal/progressive agenda of continuing reforms for common welfare must be dynamically pursued to accomplish timely innovations in governance, minimising exclusive production, putting huge burden on economy and reducing per-capita share, may help-reinvent an active democracy, thereby further expanding freedom of choice and opportunities to all in the era of digitalisation preceded by liberalisation and globalisation.

      Abstract: Indian Journal of Public Administration, Ahead of Print.
      The provision of public services is one of the important functions performed by a government as it ensures the growth of a nation and promotes welfare and justice in society. Public services are characterised by timeliness, quality and grievance redressal in the course of service delivery. Quality is an important component of public service delivery and determines citizens’ satisfaction and trust in the government. The debates on governance during the 1990s were focused on service delivery as the most important component in the governance process. Public services were seen as a medium for interaction between the citizens and the government through street-level agents of the state to promote the welfare and wellbeing of the people. Developments like the Citizen’s Charter formulation and implementation, social audit, e-Governance programme, Public Service Guarantee Act, and so on have shaped the governance discourse in India.This essay highlights the significance of quality in public service delivery in India, its need the quality-satisfaction-trust triad, barriers to quality in public service delivery, tools to ensure the quality of public services in India and international best practices.

      Abstract: Indian Journal of Public Administration, Ahead of Print.
      Modern governments after having put much of their services on the e-governance mode through the use of Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) and the internet have as a result thereof brought about greater transparency in public governance especially at the government-citizen interface level. This has proved to be a giant step in the eradication of administrative corruption. Further impetus was added to this by the advent of Right to Information Law that went a step ahead by opening up the internal functioning of the government to public scrutiny and making bureaucrats accountable for their actions.The article is a humble attempt to examine how and in what ways the Right to Information in India has resulted in bringing about greater transparency in public governance particularly in India, thereby proving to be a milestone in the fight against administrative corruption.

      Authors: Nizam Ahmed

      Abstract: Indian Journal of Public Administration, Ahead of Print.
      This article examines the process of curriculum development for Public Administration in public universities in Bangladesh and explores the extent to which Bangladesh can learn lessons from others’ experiences, especially from countries in the South Asian region. The article compares and contrasts the curriculum and courses offered by different departments of Public Administration and explores reasons for variations. It also analyses measures adopted for the modernisation of curriculum and identifies factors that are likely to retard the progress towards change and improvement. The article argues that the widespread autonomy that different universities enjoy has become counterproductive, leading to a decline in the standard of education and the politicisation of the governing process in the universities. Everything now weighs in party political terms. This, in turn, causes more harm than good. Bangladesh can try to learn, especially from India’s experiences, how to stress on striking a balance between autonomy to be enjoyed by universities and control to be exercised by the government/University Grants Commission (UGC) to ensure that the practice does not differ much from the ideal.

  • The Teachers’ Transfer Policy, Haryana (2016): A Critical Evaluation

      Abstract: Indian Journal of Public Administration, Ahead of Print.
      The Teachers’ Transfer Policy, 2016, for teachers serving in government schools across Haryana was started with the explicit goal of improving job satisfaction for teachers. It represented a major reform in transfer of teachers in public schools across the state, as prior to this, transfers were mired in political hurdles and corruption. This study adopts a mixed-methods approach to assess teachers’ satisfaction with the policy and explores perceptions across the population on whether it affects their work satisfaction too. The study finds that teachers experience the implementation of the policy in a more nuanced way than the officials. It also finds that they exhibit a high level of satisfaction with the policy, but that it is not uniformly distributed. Rather, satisfaction varies by age and preference for allotments. Work satisfaction has been only marginally affected by the policy.

      Abstract: Indian Journal of Public Administration, Ahead of Print.
      The sudden occurrence of the Covid-19 pandemic affected millions of lives in India. The Indian government inter alia took immediate steps to give relief to the taxpayers under direct tax laws for sustaining their livelihood and to stabilise the economic growth. Post-lockdown, further measures were undertaken to address genuine concerns and hardships of the taxpayers. The suggestions of the international agencies, economic survey, some revenue officers for handling the emerging situation, and policy decisions taken by the direct tax administration pre- and post-Budget 2021 have been examined. Finally, it was found that an ongoing progressive tax structure and administration is the need of the hour for consistent economic growth and human development.

      Abstract: Indian Journal of Public Administration, Ahead of Print.
      In turbulent times, the state is charged with three-fold core responsibilities, namely, to reduce or arrest the impact of the crisis on the lives and property of the citizens, to ensure effective and quicker service delivery, and to maintain stateÐsociety relations. In this article, an attempt has been made to analyse how the government of Kerala, which is regarded as one of the best performing states in India, fought the battle of the first wave of Covid-19 in rural areas. An attempt is made to capture and examine the role of the local government institutions and civil society groups, more particularly Kudumbashree groups and to explore how the state government coordinated and facilitated the work of the different state and non-state actors for the convergence of the services delivered by them and for the maintenance of conducive stateÐsociety relations.

      Authors: Prakash Chandra Jha

      Abstract: Indian Journal of Public Administration, Ahead of Print.
      The role of cooperative federalism in India in dealing with the challenges of the Covid-19 pandemic and its effects such as economic crisis and large-scale human migration, among others, is put to test. The initial stages of the pandemic response highlighted the unitary tilt in the Indian federal structure. At the later stages of this crisis, cooperative federalism also appears to be visible. Nevertheless, the lack of cooperation between the States, and the Centre’s failure to facilitate horizontal federalism without invoking any intergovernmental agency for the purpose has made the lives of migrant workers miserable. An intergovernmental institution such as Inter-Sate Council (ISC) could have been used as a common forum for the Centre and the States for the purpose of both vertical and horizontal cooperative federalism. The pandemic has also brought to the fore the importance of India’s grassroots level of government, though, unfortunately, their potential remains underutilised.

      Abstract: Indian Journal of Public Administration, Ahead of Print.
      The Government of India preferred legislative lever of public policy over economic incentives, funding support, public awareness campaigns levers by enacting the Mental Health Care Act (MHCA) in the year 2017. MHCA 2017 mandates for mental healthcare and services for persons with mental illness and to protect, promote and fulfil the rights of such persons during delivery of mental healthcare and services. MHCA 2017 is supposed to bring socio-cultural and structural changes to mental health issues in India. This article seeks to identify the various issues and challenges in the implementation of the Act at the macro level, specifically in the areas of prevention of mental morbidities, treatment gaps, reintegration and rehabilitation of the patient. It also suggests the way forward to remove the identified barriers.

      Abstract: Indian Journal of Public Administration, Ahead of Print.
      In the years before the UN international human rights became fundamental values of law and ethics, family planning programmes designed to control population growth were adopted by many countries. This article compares the implementation of sterilisation campaigns in four countries that have used a degree of incentivisation or coercion. For each selected country, we aimed to explore two questions: How was mass sterilisation implemented, and were human rights protected' The countries are China, India, Puerto Rico and Singapore. We suggest that sterilisation should be readily available as part of an overall sexual and reproductive health service, but people’s sexual and reproductive rights must take priority.

      Panchayati Raj Institutions, the three-tier institutions of local self-governing institutions that stand at the bottom, are found in rural areas in all states of India except in the Sixth Schedule areas formed under the Indian Constitution. The genesis of India’s local governance can be traced back to ancient times. However, these institutions got their present shape and structure after a series of reform studies resulted in several Acts and constitutional amendments. In this article, an attempt has been made to understand and analyse the impact of tribal women’s participation in the local governing institutions among the Tiwas of Assam.
