INTRODUCTION
 The Hong Kong-based Political & Economic Risk Consultancy(PERC) in a 12-page report on
a business survey of 12 economies of Asiareleased on June 3, 2009 where 1,274 expatriates working in these countries wereinterviewed showed Indian bureaucracy at the bottom at the 12 position as theleast efficient bureaucracy after Philippines and Indonesia in 10 and 11 positionsrespectively. The report says that working with the country’s civil servants in Indiais a “slow and painful” process and it continues to report that “They are a powercentre in their own right at both the national and state levels, and are extremely resistant to reform that affects them or the way they go about their duties.” The cause of the malady in reference to Indian Police is analyzed and remediesare recommended in the article, ‘The Crumbling Steel Frame of India’ of this volume.

The core weakness in Karnataka police lies in sweepingly conforming to the putrid system and bad culture against conscience to coverown tracks. It is mere cowardice of mediocrity and gross selfish interests of ignobility and nothing more. Yet, no way can Karnataka police be called as anefficient, healthy and responsible bureaucratic setup yet.Faithful assessment must precede reconstruction. This volume is an effort inthis direction. Complacency leads to stagnation and is a dangerous indulgence in
