IMPROVING THE STATE OF URBAN GOVERNANCE: THE EMERGENCE OF PARTNERSHIP MODELS IN INDIAN CITIES

Ramakrishna Nallathiga

The IUP Journal of Governance and Public Policy, 2008, vol. III, issue 4, 19-33

Abstract: As cities in the developing world are coming under the grip of the forces of demographic transition and of economic liberalisation, they are being engulfed by a number of problems. In addition, the pressures of globalisation demand them to be more competitive and also seek city governance more responsive to the economic development. Yet, unfortunately, most of the cities are not well equipped to tackle these problems and this leads to a failure of public institutions like local government in delivering the amenities in an efficient and effective manner. There is an institutional vacuum in making the service delivery process. Partnership models that feature diad/triad of relations between the stakeholders may emerge to steer new governance structures. This article discusses such models emerging in the Indian cities of Bengaluru and Mumbai as illustrations worth examining in the context of improving urban governance.
