Governance: Issues And Challenges by Dr. Harpreet Kaur
The book deals with the concept of good governance in the Indian context. The crisis of environmental governance has to be seriously encountered. The public institutions need to be reinvigorated and move towards a citizen-centered administration. The introduction of Citizen Charter ensures accountability in a larger sense in relation to public satisfaction and responsive delivery of services. To be good, the government should be open and ready to provide information. Corruption in the polity leads to a lot of problems like, delivery of inferior goods and services, neglect of basic needs, distortion of fair competition etc. and so, anti-corruption measures should be taken to address problems widespread in the Indian polity and cleanse the entire system. Moreover, grassroot institutions like, the Panchayati Raj, if empowered can go a long way to ensure political participation, make people aware of their rights and enhance the quality of life. Infact, the crisis in governance calls for redefinition of the role of government, with focus to make it responsive, transparent and have speedy public grievance redressal system. The book elucidates the concept of governance and various other related issues.
