Recasting Public Administration in India

This chapter recounts how international assistance and aid for development also came with package of reform measures for administration. During the early years, it came with the developmentist administration delineating professionalism and technical competence to implement development programmes. The concept lost its appeal as little impact on performance took place. Neoliberalism then became the accepted creed, and privatizing public management and outsourcing became the buzzwords for attracting international investment. Public administration was opened up to the ‘virtues’ of the private sector and its managerial institutions and practices. Many of these ideas began to be propagated in the broad term of ‘governance’.

Keywords:   reform measures, developmentist administration, development programmes, privatization, outsourcing
