Bureaucratic Delivery System

The Bureaucratic Delivery system enables the government to dispense its policy and various welfare schemes which acts as the delivery apparatus for bringing socio-economic transformations across the country. The policy related outcomes were delayed to the intended beneficiaries. The Modi Government has kick started and vigorously implementing the Direct benefit Transfer (DBT) mechanism in many welfare schemes to avoid the leakage and corrupt activities involved in the scheme implementation process. Thus by changing the structure of Dispensation Mechanism from the top till the grass root levels across the country to enable the progressive growth for the country. Even though the total number of diplomats in service is much lower than the number of diplomats in other countries which are smaller in demography than India needs proactive measures in modernising the policy delivery system.

Objectives of the Roles

India is a growing economic super power and Global Knowledge and cultural hub which aims its economic growth in double digits and 5 Trillion dollar Economy, which can be achieved only if every rural areas especially every villages and district need to contribute for the aggregate GDP growth of our entire Nation, But our administrative setup in district levels is to collect taxes and revenues and also DMs or collectors need to focus on increasing their districts GDP contribution to the state and eventually the nation's growth. The objectives of every administrative role should be demarcated for achieving the common vision of India’s prosperity.

Above Board Communiqué

The Final Functionaries of the various programme implementations should be informed well enough and communicated properly from the top ministries to the final dispensation point for the effective delivery of the sketched policy. For example in a corporate structure, if a board directors took a decision of growth. It will be eventually implemented by all the departments for the growth expansion and additional finances for the overall growth and outcome oriented approach. This outcome based policy delivery mechanism will be effective only when there is a proper communiqué from the top to the bottom.

Achieving National Objectives

The shared vision can be achieved by the effective communication and transfer of information. When we need products but bluffing about the concepts for decades is not a correct approach for outcome based Policy dispensation systems. There also should be proper feedback mechanisms to continuously monitor the progress of the policy implementation, otherwise in reality often there was no connection between ground level and the ministries and secretarial level about the programme implementation. Hence from the grassroots we should Communicate, Orient and motivate to achieve the common National Objectives of double digit economic growth.

New Delivery Mechanisms & Regulators

Currently our country is at the years of economic boom and it’s commonly known as the fastest growing economy of the world under visionary leadership of Modi and world’s saviour amidst the COVID pandemic by enabling vaccines to the world acting as the global Pharmaceutical Capital. When the economy is booming a lot of FDI/FPI will be drawn which involves huge private participation for propelling our country upwards, so there must be proper regulation to regulate the activities without affecting the outcome. Hence every regulation should be in line with Today’s Thinking and Tomorrows’ Requirements.

Codification of roles

MPs and MLAs should exercise powers in legislations rather than not in transfers and tenders, Due to this nature the overall governance gets diluted with corruption and grafts, so it's mandatory to code each and everyone's responsibilities and their major stake in bringing reforms and development schemes and legislations. Political and Administrative roles should be codified to avoid conflict of interest and to bring synergies to work for development. By codification of roles, exact demarcation of responsibilities to achieve common vision for Progressive development.
