What 2018 taught us about how not to reform the Indian State

As India heads to the polls, 2019 is likely to witness renewed promises, across party lines, of “maximum governance”. But achieving this goal will require the new government to resist the impulse for seeking quick fixes and confront head on the limitations of the current reform imagination.

In 2018, however, the pendulum slowly swung back toward centralisation.(HT Photo)
