Recasting Public Administration in India

This chapter illustrates the consequences of privatization and public–private partnerships in delivering education and health services in India. The reasons for using PPPs in providing physical infrastructure are very different from the ones for their use in the social sector. In both kinds of services, no single mode of PPP is implemented and experimentation has been widely undertaken. PPPs pose challenges of inclusion and affordability in the health and education sectors. Significantly, the chapter also underlines that the private sector hesitates to enter partnerships where profitability is low. It concludes that the regulatory mechanisms are ineffective as conceived at present.
