BoI Survey: 46 percent wants Indian bureaucrats to take bold decision


AFTER the Indian cricket team’s victory in the world club, babusofindia.com (BoI) posed this question: What do you think India’s bureaucrats should learn most from the world cup winning captain MS Dhoni? Here is what the key results of the BoI survey: 46 percent respondents say Indian bureaucrats need to take bold decisions. The result is interesting as there has already been an apprehension that Indian bureaucrats may now be over-cautious in taking bold decisions in the backdrop of the mega investigation on a series of recent scams.
In the same survey, over 19 percent people say bureaucrats need to “set target” whereas 18 percent want them to be “frank”. As India’s cricket captain MS Dhoni was appreciated by all for his cool nature, we posed this question: Do you want Indian bureaucrats to be “super cool like Dhoni”? 23 percent says: Yes, it’s more important to be cool than to be frank.
Here is the snapshot of the result:
What do you think India’s bureaucrats should learn most from the world cup winning captain MS Dhoni?
Take bold decision: 46.3%
Set Target: 19.4%
Be Frank: 18.7%
Be Super Cool: 15.4%
There has been a debate on how to improve Indian administration as many global surveys have ranked Indian bureaucracy lower than the rest. For the last two years, a survey undertaken by Hong Kong-based risk consultancy firm PERC has rated Indian bureaucracy the "worst in Asia". The survey which gets global media attention further claims that Indian politicians’ promise to reform and revitalize bureaucracy has failed as “the civil service is a power centre in its own right”.
