Ethics, Integrity and Aptitude

Foundational Values for Civil Service in India

By P.D. Sharma

This book looks at issues in moral philosophy and civil service values in India, which devolve higher and heavier responsibilities on career public servants in a modernizing democracy of India's size and diversities. The aptitudes of civil servants and the foundational values of public service in India are examined in the light of new research in the fields of 'neurology' and 'emotional intelligence.' The ethical concerns, dilemmas, and probity issues in governance have been probed in the context of declining moral values, accountability ethics, and galloping corruption in Indian public administration. The book provokes civil servants to think and debate the ethical issues through dozens of case studies, woven around the emerging ethos of transparency, new codes of conduct, and the work culture of service delivery in government offices. The book also enables the reader to identify right attitudes and discover problem-solving approaches in dealing with conflicts in society.
