NIT Durgapur Course Public Policy Issues in India
There are three major reasons for exposure by India’s academic community to the discipline of Public policy, a discipline which is at early stages of development in India.
First, as India’s economic and strategic engagements with the rest of world are deepening and widening, and as geo-economic and geo-strategic environment becomes more complex, understanding implications of public policies in both India and globally has become even more essential.
Second, public policies in a Federal State (India comprises 29 States, 7 Union Territories, and numerous urban and rural bodies), is complex. As role of government and of public sector expands, appropriate analytical reasoning capabilities for formulating, designing, implementing, monitoring, and evaluating public policies are becoming more essential.
Third, is the opportunities provided by vastly enhanced computing capabilities for deep-dives into empirical data analytics. Public policies globally increasingly use these capabilities to help improve their effectiveness.
