FEDERAL PUBLIC SERVICE COMMISSION
COMPETITIVE EXAMINATION FOR RECRUITMENT TO POSTS
IN BPS – 17 UNDER THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT, 1991.

PUBLIC ADMINISTRATION

TIME ALLOWED: THREE HOURS MAXIMUM MARKS:100

NOTE: Attempt FIVE questions in all. All questions carry equal marks.

1. Pakistan has been described by some foreign writers on Public Administration as an administrative state or a bureaucratic policy. What do you understand of this statement and how far do you agree with it?

2. “Civil Service today is still fundamentally the product of the nineteenth century philosophy of the Northcote-Trevelyan report. The tasks it faces are those of the second half of the twentieth century.” Do you consider this quote to be a fair comment on our personnel system? Argue your case for or against.

3. “Every company has two organizational structures: the formal one is written on the charts; the other is the everyday living relationship of the men and women in the organization.” Give your views on formal and informal organizational structures in governmental organizations in the light of this excerpt from former I. T. T. Chairman Harold S. Geneen’s book ‘Managing’.

4. a) In a democratic policy, the civil service in its actions is accountable to the people through the Legislature. How is this legislative control exercised?
b) What is Judicial Review of administrative action and how is it exercised in Pakistan?

5. Our district administration set-up has been compared to the French prefecture system as two examples of elitest bureaucratic structures. However, the French system has undergone a change in the past decade and now gives much more powers to the authorities of local government thus changing the relation between them and the State’s field services. Do you think any such readjustment of relationship in the districts is feasible or desirable in our administrative environment?

6. The philosophy of O & M is based on the Scientific Management movement initiated by Frederick W. Taylor and it is a means of achieving organizational objectives more speedily and efficiently. Has O & M organization in our country fulfilled the objectives of a speedy and efficient Public Administration? If not, analyze the causes of its failure.

7. The quota system of regional representation in the superior services has sometimes been criticized as favouring the privileged classes. Is this criticism legitimate? Do you consider that the quota system as it is worked at present has met the objectives for which it was instituted?

8. The terms Job Description, Job Evaluation and Position Classification occur very frequently in the reform literature on Public Administration. Give a definition of these terms and state how far these concepts can be applied to our personnel system as structured at present.
