This edited volume focuses on the issues and strategies of good governance. It takes up the problems and strategies pertaining to the delivery of public services in India. The emphasis is on how to make the public service delivery in India, efficient and effective. The questions of accountability, transparency, equity, efficiency, effectiveness, participation responsiveness, decentralisation, and ethics are first dealt with, being of vital importance in today's governance of public service delivery. The book then discusses a threefold strategy to address these issues: The first is based on reforming administration, which involves restructuring, reinvention, realignment, reengineering, and rethinking. The second is based on the application of Information and Communications Technology and e-governance in public service delivery. The third strategy is based on decentralisation through people's participation, interactive policy making, and privatisation. In addition, the book highlights various initiatives undertaken in India for effective public service delivery and proposes an action plan for an effective and responsive government. The book will be of immense use to the students, teachers, and practitioners of public administration, and to a large number of government departments at the union and state levels.
