M <p><em>Information and Communication Technology provides an excellent opportunity to reform the governance process. It helps people and countries across the globe to deal with the changing situations and disruption created by COVID-19. But the rapid proliferation of ICT along with the digital divide brings several consequences comprising educational barriers, worsening gender discrimination and so on. The gender digital divide- the gap or inequalities present between women and men regarding their access to and use of ICT- is a global phenomenon and badly affects women in developing countries. Even though India has the second highest number of internet users in the world gender digital divide is a major hindrance to India's journey towards digitalization. Digitalization has gained importance and a new meaning due to the after-effects of the pandemic. Large sections of the Indian population especially women have limited access to the internet and basic digital services. Several adverse factors combine and they create plummeting effects on women's digital inclusion in India. This article seeks to analyze the existing gender digital divide and the factors which are responsible for or amplify the gender digital inequality in India.</em></p> <p><strong><em> </em></strong></p> 2023-12-10T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2022 Journal of People, Politics and Administration The Public Governance Internship and Chief Minister’s Fellowships in India: An Empirical Analysis of Haryana 2023-01-07T13:09:15+00:00 Dr. Rajesh Kumar Kundu Dr. Suman Lata <p><em>Public governance is one of the fundamental dimensions about evolutionary perspectives of new public governance and good governance. It observes how formal and informal public decisions and actions are being made and carried out under the purview of constitutional values having different operational problems. Thus, the evolving role of the State needs a flexible approach to designing and implementing the process of public governance by considering the principal elements of good governance. In this context, the Government of Haryana took the initiative in 2016 to assess the public governance process through the fellows namely good governance associates. This paper explores the background of the Chief Minister’s team as the agents of good governance in India and especially in Haryana through the empirical analysis and observations gathered through direct interaction with good governance associates and administrative machinery. The primary objective of this paper is to highlight the ground realities of public governance and governmental efforts in the name of innovations. </em></p> <p> </p> 2023-12-10T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Journal of People, Politics and Administration Ethnicity and Ethnic Phenomena in North East India. 2023-11-26T10:45:59+00:00 Mr. Sankar Das Dr. K.V. Reddy <p>The North-Eastern area of India is home to a diverse range of ethnic communities, with over 75 main groups and subgroups speaking over 4000 languages and dialects. This diversity poses challenges for nation-building and country integration. Ethnicity is defined as an individual's identification with a specific social group and its associated cultural practices. Factors such as language, race, religion, and shared history contribute to the formation of ethnic groups. The region of North East India is characterized by a variety of ethnic groups, each with their own unique cultural traditions and practices. The contemporary era has witnessed an increase in the salience of ethnicity within the socio-political domain of the region. Ethnic movements in the region have the potential to disrupt established social and political structures, leading to inter-community conflicts. The historical trajectory of ethnic assertion in the region is closely linked to the evolution of political systems, administrative frameworks, and societal forces. The emergence of new elite strata within ethnic groups has played a significant role in advocating for the aspirations and needs of their respective communities.</p> 2023-12-10T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Journal of People, Politics and Administration Transgender Policies of the Government: A Study 2023-12-16T16:48:59+00:00 Ms. Sreelekshmi R. <p>There have always been feminist movements in India pertaining to gender issues. However, only in recent years have laws supporting gender identification issues and policies for transgender community welfare started to take effect. The government has initiated a number of efforts in the late 19th century, but only in the past ten years have these acts been formally recognised. A timeline of all the significant national initiatives of the central government for the empowerment of the transgender community is explained in this study. Kerala, which has the country's highest Human Development Index score, has created the country's first state-level transgender policy in line with the famous NALSA judgement of the Supreme Court of India. The Kerala Transgender Policy and some steps taken by the state's social justice department are also discussed. For a comparative knowledge of transgender policies in various socio-economic and political contexts, some model international policies of countries such as Australia, the United Kingdom, the United States of America, Germany, and Argentina are also covered.</p> 2023-12-28T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Journal of People, Politics and Administration Revisiting India’s Knowledge Source of Conflict Resolution Mechanisms: An Analysis of Mahabharat’s Approaches 2023-12-16T16:47:37+00:00 Dr. Jagmeet Bawa Ms. KM Pratibha <p><em>In its lakh verses, the epic Mahabharat contains all the human knowledge. Its verses reveal important knowledge about the various aspects of the social system and outline every aspect of statecraft, including the ruler's duties in both regular and emergency periods. Every type of policy has been examined in Mahabharat in terms of both internal and external politics. This paper assesses Shree Krishan's methods for resolving disputes. Saam, Daan, Bhed, and Dand are the primary diplomatic approaches Krishan used to settle conflicts. It also explains how to use these approaches to resolve a disagreement. This paper makes an effort to identify Shree Krishan's peace-making endeavours, emphasize his conflict resolution negotiating abilities, and examine his approach to holding onto power to negotiate future conflict. </em><em>This paper predominantly examines how conflict resolution techniques from Mahabharat might be used in contemporary society.</em></p> 2023-12-22T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Journal of People, Politics and Administration
