Municipal Administration and Education (2 Volumes)
The history of Municipal Administration in India is rather very recent. It was in 1861 that the British Government passed legislation for the formation of municipalities in some of the metropolitan cities of India. These municipalities were formed with a view to serve the interests of the British Administration. Now, that India has become free and its needs and aspirations are different, it is highly imperative that a fresh look is given to the Municipal Administration. The Indian Parliament in the recent legislation has tried to develop powers to the lower levels of the citizenry. As such the Municipal Board of India has been delegated powers of administrating and developing education upto secondary level. this is a new experience and before any judgement is given some time will have to pass. However, certain reasonable hunches can be made and situation can be analyzed as to what may possibly happen in the field of education after it is entrusted to the Municipal Boards. These two volumes discuss the History, Philosophy, and practices of the Municipal Boards in the contemporary context of educational development.
