1. As an aspirant for the Civil Services, you are expected to promote the sovereign good. What exactly is this good? Is it the good of ‘We , the People’ or is it the good of our political masters, who represent `We the people’ ? Mr. Gadkari once warned the IT officials not to be at the beck and call of the party in power. This party will not always be in power, so be careful, he said. The Indian Revenue Service officers protested. Mr. Gadkari withdrew his comment. Is it the good of the State as against the good of humanity? If it is the good of the State, how do you deal with war criminals? I would like you to commence a discussion on this topic.
2. There are managerial issues that constantly face the administrator. What should he do when confronted by moral issues?
3 .Originally, the ethics framework identifies general core values that should be common to all member states. These values are the rule of law (“lawfulness”), impartiality/ objectivity, transparency (“openness”), accountability, professionalism (“expertise”), and duty of care, reliability (“confidence, trust”) and courtesy (“service principle”). If it is believed that these are the core values, then they should be fully recognized in every country. How far are they recognized in India?
