It is said that there is too much political interference in the working of the administrative machinery. It is suggested that there should be more and more autonomous agencies which do not have to answer to the ministers.

A. Do you think this will make administration more people friendly?

B. Do you think this will make administration more efficient?

C. Does democracy mean full control of elected representatives over the administration?

Answer :

A. NO, this will not make administration more people friendly as it would function subjectively and thus, lose its accountability without the check and balance approach. There is undoubtedly political interface in the working of the administrative. It is suggested that there should be more autonomous agencies which have no responsibility to answer the ministers. The elected representatives and the ministers are the representative of the people and the administration is under their control and regulation, hence they cannot act in violation of the policies adopted by the legislature. The bureaucracy is also expected to be politically neutral. It is the duty of the administrative machinery to realistically and efficiently participate in drafting the policy and implementing them in the country.

B. This will not make the administration more effective as it would lead to disobedience of bureaucratic executives with government policies. Thus, it would lead to denial of the bureaucratic authority with those of the government objectives. Social welfare cannot be compromised thus; if autonomous agencies would be there then it will make administration more efficient.

C. In a democracy the elected representative does not have full control over the administration. The main task of these elected representatives is to make laws, implement them and keep the administration accountable. In a democratic scenario, the elected representatives have the right to make the policies, but the administration has to implement those policies effectively.
