Public Institutions in India: PERFORMANCE AND DESIGN
Public Institutions in India: PERFORMANCE AND DESIGN
Description

About the Book:

The modern state secures legitimacy and carries out its tasks of governances and development thorough a diverse range of institutions. This volume analytically assesses the design, performance, and adaptability of the principle 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 the 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 performance 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 evaluated if the state has the capacity to adapt to a changing environment.

Providing detailed and original insights into the working of institutions and assessing the manner in which they assist, strengthen, thwart, manipulate, and subvert each other, this unique volume will be of interest to a scholarly audience in political science, public administration, and political sociology in addition to bureaucrats and policy planners, journalists, activists, and informed general audience.

The Nataraja statue arrived fully intact and is absolutely beautiful. I appreciate the great care that was taken in securely wrapping it. I am very satisfied. I have used a few other websites for Indian goods in the past but this experience was so smooth and the shipping so quick that I will be using Exotic India as my first choice and option in the future.
