The Second Administrative Reforms Commission has been constituted to prepare a detailed blueprint for revamping the public administration system.

- The Commission will suggest measures to achieve a proactive, responsive, accountable,
sustainable and efficient administration for the country at all levels of the government. The

4. The Commission may exclude from its purview the detailed examination of the administration
of Defence, Railways, External Affairs, Security and Intelligence, as also subjects such as
Center-state relations, judicial reforms, etc. which are already being examined by other bodies.
The Commission will, however, be free to take the problems of these sectors into account in
recommending re-organization of the machinery of the Government or of any of its service
5. The Commission will give due consideration to the need for consultation with the State
6. The Commission will devise its own procedures (including for consultations with the
State Government as may be considered appropriate by the Commission), and may appoint
committees, consultants/advisers to assist it.
The Commission may take into account the existing material and reports available on the subject and consider building upon the same rather than attempting to address all the issues ab initio.
7. The Ministries and Departments of the Government of India will furnish such information
and documents and provide other assistance as may be required by the Commission.
The government of India trusts that the State Governments and all others concerned will extend
their fullest cooperation and assistance to the Commission.

& Pensions, Government of India, within one year of its constitution.
