About the Book

This comprehensive textbook addresses the role that the agencies of administrative development play in the functioning of a government, especially in a developing country like India.

Written specifically as a textbook for undergraduate and postgraduate students of public administration, Development Administration in India traces and analyses the concerns and challenges faced by administrations and governments to achieve inclusive and sustainable development in India. The book dwells extensively on the importance of NGOs and the role of women and self-help groups in the development of administration in India. Further, it discusses the administrative theories, concepts and functions in the international context. 

The highlight of this book is the inclusion of current topics and evaluation of emerging issues such as environmental sustainability, tribal development, ethical deficit and e-governance, which makes this text equally relevant for Civil and State Services Examination aspirants.
