The country’s bureaucratic ways have not changed much since the foreign rulers left our shores in 1947. Whilst the British have kept pace with the times and have abolished notary public, oath commissioner, stamp paper, revenue stamp etc., we continue to cling to archaic practices such as R & I, diary, file notings, DO, GO, MO, Sahab, affidavit, notary and never ending file numbers! Modern management concepts and techniques have completely eluded our governments. Decision making processes fail to hold anyone accountable. While corruption and delays are an obvious fallout of outdated practices, the toll it has taken on our economy has set the nation back by several decades.
Reforms in the way the government functions will speed up decision making and execution while fixing accountability and easing the pain of citizens seeking public services.
