Abstract

This is the first of a five-volume series that shall attempt to capture the many faces of the District Officer, otherwise known as District Collector, District Magistrate or Deputy Commissioner. As the key administrator at the district level, often posted at an age younger than 30, he is the single reference point for virtually all problems and issues that may arise across all departments in his jurisdiction. While there are several books and papers defining and re-defining this crucial and key element in the bureaucratic structure of any state of India, this series of studies now proposed will examine five variegated aspects of the post.
