By the Way

By the way : Ethics in governance

Ethics-in-governanceThere is some good news for youngsters aspiring to appear for the civil services examination. Dr Dalip Singh, an IAS officer of the 1982-batch of the Haryana cadre, has started an exclusive channel on Youtube to update their skills and knowledge about ethics, integrity and emotional intelligence in administration and governance. Post retirement, Dr Singh is occupying a constitutional post as State Election Commissioner in Haryana. He has taken the responsibility of assisting the young minds about ethics in governance. The Union Public Service Commission (UPSC) has, of late, taken keen interest in judging the aptitude and attitude of young aspirants for civil services on issues like ethics, integrity, emotional intelligence, social and moral values, corruption, code of conduct, transparency and accountability, to name a few. There is a paper of 250 marks in the main examination to prove that the applicants will uphold the integrity and accountability of government if they clear the exam. However, the questions being asked for the last 2-3 years are vague, conflicting and childish. Dr Singh is interviewing civil servants who know the art of tactfully navigating troubled waters and want to share their rich experiences with budding bureaucrats. He will be asking uncomfortable questions to senior civil servants from IAS, IFS, IPS, IRS, Railways and other distinguished services. Some examples are: What is the role and consequences of ethics in good governance? Whether ethics is inherited or learned? In what way can the lives and teachings of administrators, reformers, and leaders help young people to embrace human values? Do you think empathy and compassion towards weaker sections of the society is on the decline and that the young generation lacks the attitude to appreciate their problems? Do you agree that corruption in administration has been a big issue over the years? Policy systems have been designed in such a way that corruption cannot be avoided. How do you think situation can be improved? Let us help Dr Singh achieve this noble objective by subscribing to Dr Dalip Singh IAS CHANNEL on Youtube. gfiles end logo
