About the Book :

Public administration includes primarily the organization, personnel practices and procedures essential to the effective performance of civilian functions entrusted to the executive branch of government. It is the composite of all the laws, regulations, practices, relationships, codes and customs that prevail at any time in any jurisdiction for the fulfilment or execution of public policy.Public administration is far wider in scope and all pervasive in modern life. In democracies, particularly in India, the system, theories and organization of Public Administration require constant adjustment and readjustment in a changing situation. Public administration is essentially an instrument that has to step aside to allow the impulses of growth of the people to blossom forth to build self-reliant communities.The present book has been divided into five parts covering every possible aspect related to public administration. Comprehensive and up-to-date, this book emphasizes a value based approach to the study and practice of public administration.The language of the book has been kept deliberately simple so as to make it easily accessible to the average readers. Latest works, articles, papers and reports published by both private and government departments have been referred to which make the book highly informative and authentic. Students of Public Administration both at undergraduation and graduation levels will find it useful. Even for the teachers of the subject, it is an ideal reference book.
