Will IAS reforms result in an effective bureaucracy?

It is often said that an efficient bureaucracy is a compliment to democracy. The Indian Administrative Service with its coveted position is considered to be significant for the very foundations of our country. But there is now speculation over changes being brought into the training pattern of the IAS which prompted  Bureaucracy Today to examine the issue thoroughly.

Our Cover Story this month throws light on the much talked-about proposal of reducing the training period for Class I government officers from one year to a much shorter period of five weeks on the lines of other countries such as China. In an exclusive interaction with Bureaucracy Today, Minister of State for Personnel, Public Grievances and Pensions V Narayanasamy talks about the possibilities of pinching the training period for IAS officers and other drastic changes being contemplated by the DoPT to streamline the Indian bureaucracy, reduce the alarming shortage of officers and ensure greater efficiency.

While we at BT feel that an efficient bureaucracy is one that has the ability to adapt itself with times, any reforms being brought about must involve all stakeholders. With considerate planning and involvement of all stakeholders, it is possible to introduce reforms which can help evolve the bureaucracy into a more proficient and well-organized entity.

Our Bureaucrat of the month for this issue is Noida Authorities CEO Rama Raman. With his consistent efforts to improve infrastructure in Noida and evolve methodologies for greater transparency, Raman is an inspiration for other bureaucrats across the country. His humble nature and dedication to work make him an ideal bureaucrat and it is for this reason that our editorial board decided to make Rama Raman Bureaucrat of the month for June 2013.
