Public Accountability and Transparency: The Imperatives of Good Governance

Madhav Godbole (Author)
Synopsis This book looks at the concepts of public accountability and transparency—the two critical prerequisites of good governance. Covering a wide range of institutions—governmental and non-governmental—the percepts of public accountability and transparency are examined in the wider context of parliamentary institutions and their procedures and practice, electoral reforms, the executive wing of the government, the corporate sector, the cooperative sector, the judiciary, the media and civil society. Issues such as the right to information, making state budgets transparent and user-friendly, and the wide and varied connotations of good governance are comprehensively discussed in the Indian context. The present shortcomings and weaknesses and the manner in which these can be remedied are addressed sharply. The author, Madhav Godbole, brings to this book years of civil service experience, authority and a critical analysis of issues. The book is a must-read for elected representatives, policy makers, policy analysts, academics, social thinkers, administrators, representatives of the media and opinion-makers.
