IIPA holds workshop on ‘ethics in public administration’
‘Nexus between politicians, bureaucracy, business led to recent scams’
Jammu, July 19: Indian Institute of Public administration (IIPA) J&K regional branch today organized a one day workshop “Ethics in Public Administration” here.
According to an IIPA statement, over 30 mid-level officers of various departments of J&K government including police, industry, banks and corporate sector attended the workshop. The key theme deliberated during the workshop included ‘Ethics vis-a-vis Public administration’, ‘E-governance’, ‘Right to Information’, ‘Prevention of Corruption Act’ etc.
Former chief secretary, Dr. S S Bloeria, said ethics were equated with dharma in the ancient Indian philosophy and the same truly stands for individual conduct in its day-to-day life. He informed the officers of the three key parameters i.e., anonymity, ethics and continuity saying the ethics was very basic to all.
IIPA chairman and National Security Advisory Board member Dr. Ashok Bhan, said unethical behavior pushes one into a vicious circle and managers in the government and private sector must not fall prey to it. “The nexus between politicians, bureaucracy and business has led to recent scams.” He highlighted the need for electoral reforms to come out of this morass and advised the participants to live within their means.
Senior system analyst, DOEACC, DS Oberoi highlighted the benefits of this process for the reduction of corruption in the country.
The presentations were followed up by panel discussion in which Justice (Retd) O P Sharma and M M Khajooria, former DGP, J&K and Dr. Ashok Bhan, former Vigilance Commissioner, highlighted some key issues related to “eroding legitimacy of state systems leading to rise of civil society against corruption in a big way.” They felt that the state institutions could, still if given independence and teeth, meet the requirements to curb corruption.
