legalised A highly legalised system of complaints redress could have several unintended effects The possibility of imposing significant penalties on bureaucratsthe ease of filing cases and the lack of penalties for frivolous claims could combine to create a temptation to use grievance redress systems as venues to advance personal agendasas has been the case with PILs and the legal system in general Like the courtsthe system could become so backlogged that individuals could lose the incentive to file formal grievances And emphasising time-bound limitscombined with the threat of penaltiescould create an incentive for public authorities to skimp on quality when they deliver services Incorporating quality standardswhich are harder to make legally precise than time limitsinto citizens charters

NewsUpdated: February 19 2014 9:46 am Related News Concerns over age limits and number of chances for civil services are overblown Transformative change is so difficult to achieve in practice that we often settle for piecemeal improvements However incremental reform even if well-intentioned is always dissatisfying and often counterproductive The changes made to the scheme and structure of the civil services examination (CSE) between 2011 and 2013 squarely illustrate how even overdue improvements can have unintended consequences that act as a drag on the larger reform project While the first change in 2011 did not attract too much dissent since it modified only the qualifying preliminary examination scheme last year’s changes led to more concerted protests as they affected the main examination stage which actually counts when the final merit list for some of the most prized jobs in government is drawn up No one can deny that these jobs hold prestige and attraction for a large swathe of the aspirational Indian middle class There is also anecdotal evidence that candidates spend many years preparing for the exam and the inevitable rush to implement reform by modifying the examination pattern perhaps did not adequately account for the vehement social and political opposition that this could potentially draw from candidates and their well-wishers The clamour for “postponing” the effects of the reform received wide publicity and last week the Central government approved two additional attempts for all categories of candidates with effect from 2014 and with consequential relaxation of the maximum age limit if required Now a general category candidate can make six attempts at the examination between the ages of 21 and 32 (as counted on August 1 of the exam year) Candidates belonging to other categories are allowed different and somewhat more relaxed upper age limits It is now possible for a general candidate to enter service at the age of 33 while relaxed provisions in particular cases can theoretically allow a candidate pushing 40 to join as a civil service probationer (in CSE 2011 about 13 per cent of the successful candidates across all categories were above 30) Individual — and perhaps even deserving — cases apart the concern with age limits and number of chances is motivated first by fears about the “trainability” of older qualifying candidates For example a report of the second administrative reforms commission (ARC) held that around the age of 23-24 an individual makes the transition from an open and receptive phase in life to a phase where she gets “set” in her views which “makes it difficult for a civil servant entering at a later age to adapt to and internalise the core and intrinsic values demanded of a civil service” More pragmatically it has been argued that late entry impedes a civil servant from reaching the top of the pyramid (the grail of secretary to the government of India) since she has fewer years of experience to show in a merit-cum-seniority scheme when it comes to the crunch (this is demonstrably more so for SC/ ST officers some of whom may have entered at an even later age) It has been argued that this in turn discourages altruism and could even encourage the pursuit of self-aggrandisement and private profit On the other hand the poor access of candidates from rural and backward areas and communities to educational facilities and infrastructure in comparison with their urban counterparts makes it necessary to offer countervailing relaxations in the interests of equity diversity and representativeness It is also certainly true that “late blossomers” (Kothari Committee 1976) and others who wish to improve their credentials would be denied an opportunity to enter the civil service if the upper age limit were kept too low as it was pre-1970s (24 for general category) Without adequate data the debate between these two positions is potentially endless The ARC’s pragmatic recommendation was to adopt 25 as the upper age limit for general candidates allowing a relaxation of three and four years for OBC and SC/ ST/ differently-abled candidates respectively This was based on the need to avoid three undesirable outcomes of late entry: one it works against the interests of the weaker sections in the long run; second it does not enable recruitment of the best candidates at a “malleable age”; finally it puts a premium on rote learning and coaching institutes What has been lost through the relaxation of the upper age limit and the increase in the number of chances is the opportunity to minimise these undesirable outcomes In privileging the reform of examination content over process and indeed in even segregating the two and pushing one without due consideration for the impact this will have on the other another opportunity to institute meaningful reform appears to have been wasted CSE reform ought to have been an easy enough place to begin the
