Recasting Public Administration in India

The chapter points out that concern for inappropriateness of a colonial-style administration and need for reform had been a continuous refrain since Independence. A number of formal committees and commissions had been appointed and their recommendations discussed. A widely noticed report was that of an international expert Paul Appleby in 1953, which set the pace for this activity. Five-Year Plans and pay commissions joined in by adding suggestions. However, little impact was made and the administration continued with an essentially colonial legacy.

Keywords:   Paul Appleby report, Five-Year Plans, pay commissions, colonial legacy, colonial-style administration
