Abstract: The study of Public Administration has advanced to an extraordinary degree since 1920. Then recognized in the curricula of only a few universities, it has now become a staple subject in college and university studies. In 1939 the American Society for Public Administration and its quarterly journal ‘Public Administration Review’ were founded. Specialists in personnel management, municipal administration, budget procedures, and other fields now have their organisation and publications. The study of public administration, as a separate academic discipline received a remarkable boost with the establishment of the Indian Institute of Public Administration (IIPA) in 1954 and the establishment of the Indian School of Public Administration in 1957 within the IIPA. Public Administration, as a discipline, is witnessing dawn of a new era in its study, which now by stepping out of its orthodox/conventional mould seeks to create an independent space in Social Sciences. The overzealous endeavour at making Public Administration an instrumental and goal-driven technical exercise has taken out the dynamism of the discipline as an organic search for administrative solutions for socioeconomic problems in the country. The discipline is reduced to efforts at building specific skills which are required to address the identified problems without recognizing their socio-economic and political roots. The discussion that follows revolves around those major issues which remain critical in the framing of syllabus and in class teaching.
