Gist of Important National Administrative Committees Report

Gist of Important National Administrative Committees Report

Dear Aspirants,
This booklet is gist of repository of selected important reports pertaining to Indian Administration and society on issues like Ethics, Integrity and aptitude; disaster management; centre-state relations; civil services and governance. These Committees and Commissions are formed time to time as per the requirement of the administrative situation.

Behind the formation of all administrative committees the main agency is Ministry of Personnel, Government of India, which one is also recruitment agency for IAS. That is why before introduction of ‘Ethics,Integrity and Aptitude’ in General Studies syllabus of IAS,Ministry of Personnel launched distance learning programme on ‘Values in Administration’. So how can one ignore the reports of the administrative committees formed by Ministry of Personnel on such core issues covering the Mains syllabus of UPSC-IAS.

Like inclusion of ‘Ethics, Integrity and Aptitude’ in General Studies is not an instant decision but outcome of several developments and at present society Corruption is an issue in both public and private life.After Independence several committees like Gorwala Committee, Appleby Committee, Santhanam Committees,First and Second ARC were formed in India to address the issues of Ethics,Integrity and Aptitude.

On Disaster Management the third report of ARC-II “Crisis Management from despair to hope” worked well.

On Centre-State relations First ARC,Sarkaria Commission and Punchhi commission is memorable.

On Civil Services report of Surinder Nath,B.N Yugandhar and P C Hota is quite popular since its formation.
