IAS Mains Public Administration
ANALYSIS OF TWO CONCEPTS
Good Governance – The word ‘Government’ connotes a static meaning i.e.
an institution. But the word GOVERNANCE has a connotation of dynamism. The
ultimate aim is to deliver the goods and services to the people. The word ‘Good’
has an ethical connotation and this basic understanding of the term is important
for you in applying it in your answers.
New Public Management- It simply means a ‘NEW’ style of managing the
public sector. This new style of management is nothing but the application of
3E’s-Efficiency, Effectiveness and Economy. This implies accountability and
value for money and citizen’s charters and RTI are the tools for establishing
this new style of management skills in public sector.
