(p.136) 12 Social Mobilization for Public Accountability
Recasting Public Administration in India

Oxford University Press

This chapter examines administrative accountability through the democratic pillar of public transparency. One of the pillars of democratic accountability is the availability of adequate information in the public domain about the functioning government. It has taken a social movement for transparency in government to establish people’s right to information through the passage of the Right to Information Act in 2005. However, traditional administration has not reconciled to its demands and PPPs are kept out of its purview on the plea that they are not public authorities. The Lok Pal (ombudsman) Bill has been passed in response to another struggle of civil society.

Keywords:   administrative accountability, public transparency, public domain, Right to Information Act, Lok Pal
