Please review @doodlebean  @Yo_Yo_Choti_Singh @IWRA @Agog and all others.

I used Google and other sources :)

All well but still far from being a very good answer bhai. Major improvements suggested:


1. Where is Paper 1 in it ? Where is context of the statement ? Weber, one best of classicists, Behavioural challenge, PCA critics , CPA studies by various thinkers like R Brianbanti etc ?

2. ARC , CS Survey, Recent Covid failures of bureaucracy ?

3. New pathologies coming up in bureaucracy like racism, gender and caste bias etc in both diffracted and prismatic societies ex GeorgeFloyd episode or Caste based groups of CS !

4. A flow diagram to clearly show how it denigrates organuzational competence.

5. What are solutions for reducing these pathologies ? 

4. Still utility of Weberian bureaucracy. Don't cut hand if one or two fingers are not perfect ! 


So I will give ~4.5/10 for the answer !! Keep writing, keep improving. :)


Sorry for being over critical but expect best from u now !!

How much time does it generally take to cover the whole syllabus of Public Administration(for a person who has read once the syllabus and made class notes)?

If somebody gave a mains with this optional how much time did they devote for revising it during the break between prelims and mains?

Best Practices Example:

Jharkhand: Agriculture Entrepreneur Scheme is a promising example of coordination between District Administration, CSOs and local citizens to develop a sustainable and scalable model of Agricultural development. The scheme involves imparting training to selected ‘Agri-Entrepreneurs’ for incorporation of best practices in farming for a cost-effective and profitable model of Agricultural development. The Agri-Entrepreneur Project is being run by a CSO, TRI (Transform Rural India)  wherein a farmer out of 100 is selected from a village and trained in all activities related to Agriculture, in a farm-tomarket model, thereby encouraging best practices, efficient resource management, informed decision-making and minimal reliance on middlemen.

Hi Agog. I love Iris. Can't help it 😜. I will have to work more for putting suitable examples in questions (that's my weakness I think). Thanks for your suggestions.
