About the Book

This first-of-its-kind book by a journalist covering bureaucracy lists the ailments of India’s administrative system from a common man’s point of view. It delves into the pain faced by the lesser privileged in accessing governance in our country. The book highlights the reasons behind this alleged notoriety. The possible causes of the rampant organized corruption in some (if not all) property registry offices, RTOs, civic authorities among other departments, the visible red tape, ineffectiveness of the administration in ensuring ease of accessing governance and the existence of unprofessional approach from ‘public servants’ towards the public are also discussed.
