Development administration is based on two important concepts—administration of development and administrative development. It involves modernization of administrative structure, capabilities of personnel, and attitudinal and behavioural changes among the administrators. This book simplifies the administrative functions through its examples, theories and concepts, and deals with the field of development administration with an integrated approach. This comprehensive textbook addresses the role that the agencies of administrative development play in the functioning of a government, especially in a developing country like India. Written specifically as a textbook for undergraduate and postgraduate students of public administration, Development Administration in India, traces and analyses the concerns and challenges faced by administrations and governments to achieve inclusive and sustainable development in India.
