The following booklet titled “The Planning Commission & Parkinson’s Law” authored by Touchstone elaborates on the need for reforming and a reorganization of the institution of the Planning Commission in light of the retirement of the previous vice-chairman. The author proposes that the reformation must involve the consultation of more expertised opinions from individuals who are well-versed in the language of economic development, a quality which remains deficient from the general proceedings presently. The author further comments on the anomalous positions of the Minister for Planning whose functions have been deemed as a ‘mystery’, and that of the Hony. Statistical Adviser to the Planning Commission whose working has involved the formulation of parallel plans which conflicts with the general working structure. Another mismanagement of organization is evident through the setting up of numerous assemblies ostensibly for the purpose of collecting data and screening Ministerial schemes which according to the author involves “duplication of previously conducted work”. The reformation thus involves the rationalization of work departments through the utilization of technical manpower and the commissioning of ad-hoc bodies, with precise entailments of functions to secretariat level positions.
