Abstract

After more than 50 years of independence, India's achievements in regard to life expectancy, literacy, health, and poverty alleviation compares unfavourably with many other developing countries. This paper analyzes the processes of deregulation, liberalization, and new economic reforms undertaken in India as a response to the World Bank prescription of globalization and competitiveness since 1991. The paper also examines the impact of these policies on the problems of governance and administrative reforms, and to what extent the emerging system of governance and economic reforms has been successful in alleviating poverty, reducing unemployment, and providing welfare activities — the necessary ingredients towards promoting human security. Finally, some policy strategies are suggested for adoption in India to meet the challenges of governance and to promote human security in the context of globalisation and liberalisation of the economy.
