Public Administration in India

India as a country accepted the notion of social welfare state. The Constitution has emphasized the need of establishing such governance and government system. Here is where public administration comes into the picture. 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. It not only protects its citizens from internal and external damages, but takes an active role in the social, political, economic and cultural development of the country.

Helping in this area of public administration is the India's legal services industry. This industry is growing at a rate of about 40% per annum. India?s legal profession is the world?s second largest, with more than 600,000 lawyers in more than 500 legal practices nationwide. Considering these facts it is safe to say that there will always be demand for an Official Assignee (High Court) for continuous and proper public administration in India.
