Bureaucracy and Politics

Growth of Service Jurisprudence in All India Services

By Mohammed Ali Rafath

This scholarly work examines the growth of service jurisprudence in the domain of "All India Services," looking at the historical evolution of the Indian Civil Service which led to the creation of All India Services - namely the Indian Administrative Service, the Indian Police Service, and the Indian Forest Service - and the passing of the All India Services Act, 1954. The book melds a deep understanding of the theoretical underpinnings of administration with profound insights into the practical problems of public service. It also compares the civil services in other countries, especially England, with the Indian Civil Service. It discusses the relationship between the political executive and the bureaucracy, which is a very sensitive subject, not only in India, but in other democracies of the world as well.
