DEBATE: Post your views/opinion on ‘lateral entry’

Dear readers,
We throw open a debate on the ‘lateral entry’ of Pvt Sect specialists in policy making. We would greatly appreciate your participation in this debate.
As you know, in a major move aimed at bringing domain expertise at Joint Secretary, Additional Secretary or even Secretary level ranks, the government appeared to have decided to open its doors for private sector specialists in select departments. Will it help the system achieve its goal of ‘good governance’? Or will it really add to the woes of the system without helping prevent degeneration?
Your views are solicited.
Please do write to us and be free with your views and comments. We would publish a summary of the views and may also entertain analytical pieces based on your feedback without, of course, revealing your identity.
