Professional Misconduct & Feeble Underpinning of Government Departments in India




professional misconduct, government department, service, negligence


This work tries to explore how government agencies' shoddy foundations contribute to professional misconduct. Because it is the only profession in which the general public either benefits from or suffers because of an employee's actions, working for the government is regarded as one of the most prestigious jobs in any nation. The government department is seen as a crucial component of the nation's administrative structure since the entire department is tasked with carrying out the policies and programs designed to serve the needs of the general populace. Therefore, it is only normal to have expectations that these agencies would function properly and that public officials won't misuse the authority granted to them by behaving in an ethical, sensible, and appropriate manner. Having a government department that runs smoothly is a fantasy, though, since every department has a weak base that encourages employee malfeasance that in turn leads to harassment of the general public. The word "professional misconduct" in connection to a government agency has a broad definition and refers to a variety of behaviors, including inappropriate conduct, unethical behavior, public harassment caused by excessive delays, the use of illegal tactics, etc.
