This volume of fifteen case-studies dealing with several facets of public administration in India marks the continuation of the IIPA's long-standing practice of publication of case-study volumes. The complexity of Indian reality, the daunting Nature of the tasks and challenges facing the Indian administration call for innovative measures. In turn, these pose difficult methodological questions concerning the appropriate modes of comprehension, conceptualisation, codification and documentation, and their effective communication. The critical point is that a process of learning by doing must be activated by wider sharing of the lessons of experience. It is such attempts which become the basis for inductive theories, with their wider canvass. In this process case-studies Play an important practical, heuristic and pedagogic role. It was in this perspective that this volume was conceived.A number of these case-studies were awarded on the basis of the Perception of our chosen experts, while others too were considered suitable material for wider dissemination and sharing. These case-studies are both Teaching cases as also Research case-studies and present a rich mosaic of administrative experiences.It is hoped that these case-studies touching upon various aspects of public administration in India would be found useful both by the practitioners and the students of public administration. Since these are relevant and contemporary to the India, context, this volume will also assist the trainers and Teachers of public administration to avert the Criticism that they may lean on out-of-date case-studies and that too of far-away situations.Printed Pages: 198.
