Blueprint of Political Reforms

Subhash C. Kashyap (Author)
Synopsis Nation is passing through critical times. Our polity is under severe strain. Faith of the people in the quality, integrity and efficiency of governmental institutions stands seriously eroded. Case for a review of the working of the institutions—executive, legislature and judiciary—and for wide ranging political reforms is unassailable. Based on the realisation that neither economic liberalisation policies nor administrative reforms can really succeed without structural adjustments and reforms in Indian polity, the present study aims at identifying the problems, analysing the contributing causes, examining policy options, and finally suggesting concrete reforms. The book is authored by the well-known political scientist and constitutional law specialist Dr. Kashyap. He was for long years the Secretary-General of the Lok Sabha. Most recently, he was member of the Constitution Commission (NCRWC) and Chairman of its Drafting and Editorial Committee. The main virtue of this work is that it stands on the shoulders of all the earlier exercises and efforts and has evolved during a life time of study and experience through processes of research, consultation and intensive nation-wide debates. All the reform suggestions here were tested and finally shaped through in-depth discussions with some of the best brains among the concerned citizens of all parts and regions of the country. The book is bound to be read widely and debated nationally.
