Subject MatterEditorial
Like all general issues of this quarterly journal, there is no common thematic unity
among the articles compiled in this issue beyond the subject of public administration
and governance. I have nonetheless attempted to serialise the entries running from the
general to more specifics. The first article broadly deals with the recently emergent
issues in politics, Preamble and the Constitution of India. The second article analyses
the various dimensions of public trust in the government. The one that follows it,
concerns with the impact of education on the efficiency of the elected local officials.
The fourth article throws light on the crucial issue of the Finance Commission’s
approach to disaster-risk-funding. The fifth piece delineates the use of institutions
to strengthen administrative decision-making. The sixth piece turns to the legal dimen-
sions of the performance of justice administration in India in terms of administration
of justice in India, a reasonably well-functioning parliamentary–federal system in the
global South. The next article seeks to bring out the key factors contributing to the
relative success of e-governance through the Common Service Centres in India with
special reference to the state of Kerala. The eighth piece presents an empirical study
of public service delivery in the city of Chandigarh. The ninth entry is a diagnosis of
electoral malpractices by a case study of local body elections in the state of Telangana.
The tenth piece addresses the effects of policy interactions in the health sector, with
special reference to the Kerala state of the Indian Union. The eleventh article addresses
the conundrum of designing a framework for bidding and estimating life-cycle-cost in
Indian defense sector. The twelfth article grapples with the national and international
nexus of the impact of reservations for the Other Backward Classes (OBCs) in the
Indian state of Jammu & Kashmir. The thirteenth entry enters into the nexus of social
power relations in the state of Bihar through a tale of two villages. The fourteenth
article casts an analytical glance at the perspectives of the beneficiaries of the afford-
able housing scheme of India. The fifteenth entry analyses the problem of groundwa-
ter governance in India from the perspective of legal-institutional angle.
The articles are followed by two Notes and three Book Reviews. We hope to
offer a useful set of readings for our readers.
