Innovations in Public Administration in India

Innovations in public service could be a core driver for ensuring that public administration becomes competitive, efficient, cost-effective and accountable to the citizenry.

There is also need for some scouting mechanism for public administration innovations and for providing a replicable yet flexible template to promote them across the country.
