Public Administration in India
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 protect its citizens from internal and external damages, but take an active role in the social, political, economic and cultural development of the country.
Helping in this area of public administration is are social workers. Social workers help people to overcome some of life?s most difficult challenges: poverty, discrimination, abuse, addiction, physical illness, divorce, loss, unemployment, educational problems, disability, and mental illness. They help prevent crises and counsel individuals, families, and communities to cope more effectively with the stresses of everyday life
At present the development sector is largely controlled and managed by the welfare or Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs)?who are doing the pioneer work towards the overall development of the society. A person with a degree (preferably a Master degree) in Social Work is highly preferred in developmental agencies and NGOs. In other words, it can be said that NGO sectors as well as the development sectors are being dominated by the professional social workers and there is a lot of demand for them. Considering these facts it is safe to say that there will always be demand for a Women?s Welfare Organizer for continuous and proper public administration in India.
