The government has invited people from outside the civil services to apply for ten Joint Secretary-level posts in the bureaucracy, across ten ministries. This attempt to induct a group of lateral hires into the civil service will have a big impact on the design and structure of the Indian Administrative Services. Amitabh Kant, the CEO of the NITI Aayog, explains why it’s not just a good idea but imperative if India has to grow at 9-10% each year. He’s talking to Anuradha Sengupta on Off Centre.
