After Independence our country followed the task of nation building through the doctrine of centralized
planning. India at that time was a doctrinaire of the state controlled economy. Therefore it opted the
concept of mixed economy in which both public and private sector co-existed. The public sector reached the commanding
heights of economy and private was strictly under the control of state centralized planning mechanism. The licensing and
control had placed great powers in the hands of bureaucrats and politicians. In the year P.V.Narsimha Rao government was
announced the New Economic Policy by making radical departure from Nehruvian philosophy and heralding the era of
liberalization and free market economy and government which devalued the rupee and announced far reaching reforms in
trade, Industrial and scal area. The liberalization and globalization of Indian economy under new economic policy re dened
the role of government and bureaucracy in the form of downsizing or right sizing of the government based on this strength of
staff in many departments and some of the ofces were closed . In the context of globalization private sector assume greater
importance, therefore our country have to create regulatory bureaucracy on the model of Independent Regulatory Commission
of USA. But enough attention is not being paid to this question by the government. Our current bureaucratic system do not have
the expertise to undertake the new tasks effectively in the context of liberalization and globalization in Indian public
administration in order to give better service delivery.
