This issue of the Indian Journal of Public Administration contains a dozen articles
and a couple of Notes and Book Reviews.
Mayank Bhardwaj, Ashish Ranjan and Jyoti Sharma critically throw light on the
perspectives and interconnections between the curricula and the National Education
Policy in India. They conclude, ‘The Policy proposes to revamp all aspects of the
educational systems so as to align it with the aspirations of 21st- century India’.
Roma Mitra Debnath and Abi Antony George suggest that Central Public Sector
Enterprises (CPSEs) must remain under the purview of the government, and remark
that given their record, they are once again likely ‘to become the crown jewel of the
Indian economy’.
Supriya David opines that the water resources of India call for systematic man-
agement in the interest of human well-being, agricultural sustainability and envi-
ronmental security.
Subhasmita Khuntia and Ravuru Narasaiah focus on the working of Article 356
of the Indian Constitution in the era of coalition politics in India and argue that
‘although the rise of the Bharatiya Janata Party to national political dominance since
the 2014 general elections has raised apprehension about the move towards central-
ised federalism, it is not likely to upset the current pattern of restrained use of this
Article’.
Anupam De presents an analytical case study of selected Public Sector
Undertakings with special reference to the State of West Bengal. Such spending
positively inuences its net prot in terms of the social impact of a company but
with rather an insignicant relationship with education and healthcare.
Ajay Kumar Singh, Aditya P. Tripathi, Priti Jagwani and Noopur Agrawal perform
an attitude analysis of global users of social media towards government communica-
tion and report that ‘the majority of users’ have a neutral sentiment (60.8%) about
vaccination. The need for further research on the topic is emphasised.
Anima Barnwal recommends that ‘the observed clustering of medical facilities
in particular cities in India can lend itself to the development of health cities,
which could have smart infrastructure geared towards the provision of world-
standard medical care’, allowing the stakeholders of the industry to produce rev-
enues to further improve the provision of healthcare.
