State and District Administration in India

D.D. Aggarwal (Author)

India is one of the oldest civilizations in the world with a kaleidoscopic variety and rich cultural heritage. It has achieved all-round socio-economic progress during the last 67 years of its Independence. In the context of the Indian Constitution, local government bodies are the subject of the State List and are thereby governed by State Statutes, or in the case of Union Territories, by the Union Parliament.

This book deals with issues of modernization, increased devolution of functions and powers, effective grievance handling system, people’s participation, enhancing responsiveness, process simplification and delegation of power. The book has also taken note of certain innovative measures initiated by government on issues of human resource development and social service which have resulted in better implementation practices and consequently in a marked improvement in the tenor of administration. The commoditization experiment in Nagaland and the digitised registration of documents in Bihar are two such examples. It believes that with appropriate modification it is possible to replicate such practices in other parts of the country as well. The book will be useful for students, researchers, policy-makers and administrators.

About the author

D.D. Aggarwal

D.D. Aggarwal, born in 1933, had his schooling in Sonipat (Haryana) and graduation and post-graduation from Delhi. He joined Ministry of Railways through the IAS and Allied Services Examination and retired from there as a Joint Secretary. After retirement, he adopted writing books as his pastime and has already written many books, including Protocol in Ramcharitmanas and Protocol in Srimal Bhagwat (both in English and Hindi); India Ever Independent: Why only 50 Years; CBI and Policing in India since Vedic Period and Jurisprudence in India Through the Ages. In these books, the writer has tried to trace the respective modern systems in our ancient books viz., Vedas, Samritis, Puranas etc. The present book Protocol in Mahabharata is another link in that chain depicting all aspects of modern protocol – spiritual, social, political and administrative – existing in Mahabharata, an occan of contents of Hindu way of life in that era. The author is still busy in bringing out more works in that direction.
