Market Trend of Public Administration in India

Public administration is a system through which the government carries out its business of ruling and controlling effectively. This system has been created in order to maintain a civil society and to cater to the needs of the public. Any unelected public employee who deals directly with the general public can be said to be a public administrator. They perform a wide range of functions, including managing city budgets, developing policy and legislation, implementing policies, analysing data to determine and solve public needs, ensuring security, etc. Its functions come under the spheres of public wellbeing. Maintaining public administration is the first and foremost responsibility of any government.

Of late, public administration has been introduced in Academia. The aim of educating people in public administration is to train them in democratic values such as equality, justice, security, effectiveness and order. It also prepares such human resources who can critically analyse and review public policies of the government. The modern competitive world has given rise to a huge requirement of specialised, educated, Public Administrators because of the ongoing pressure of globalisation, information technology, and terrorism. Public administration requires high level of diplomatic skills and thorough knowledge of public issues. There are a number of jobs and career prospects for a trained and motivated Public Administrator and thus, a Labour Welfare Officer has a promising career in India in future.
