Why the Nature and character of bureaucracy assume special significance in India?

ADVERTISEMENTS:

For a developing country like India where speedy socio-economic development has to be steadily] pushed through, the nature and character of bureaucracy assume special significance.

The involve me of civil servants in numerous decisions be it the location of a steel plant or a school building in a village makes them partners in development along with the politicians.

Their value preferences get inextricable mixed up with technical advice. In the context of large-scale welfare programmes therefore, neutrality is not possible. In fact a certain commitment to the goals and objectives of the state on the part of bureaucracy is inescapable. Neutrality cannot be allowed to degenerate into disinterestedness.

ADVERTISEMENTS:

The successful carrying out of developmental tasks requires on the part of administrators not only qualities of initiative and leadership but also a sense of emotional integration with the policies and programmes and identification with the interests of the common man. The idea of bureaucracy as a neutral instrument in the conduct of public affairs thus stands refuted.
