Recasting Public Administration in India

Oxford University Press

This chapter emphasizes the position of district collector and the role of civil service as a significant legacy of colonial administration. The developmentist administration added more functions and responsibilities to them; thus, embellishing their power and importance in the system. This rising power was challenged by other functional services with demands of service parity and appointments to positions of their specialization. Rivalry and conflicts arose but no change took place in spite of indictments from many reform committees.

Keywords:   district collector, civil service, parity, committees, functional services
