It is a great stabilizing force in society this is because even of the governments often change, but the administration seldom experiences violent change because of the large number of public officials that work at central, state as well as the district level.

Public administration in India plays a very important role, not only as an instrument of governance but a mechanism for social change and progress in the country.
