Abstract


There is a plenty of published and un-published sources available on Colonial bureaucracy. These sources focus on the structure, organization and performance of Imperial Civil Service (ICS). However, the public image of the service has been shaped by three of its official historians. I S S O Malley, E A H Blunt, and Philip Woodruff were articulate retired members of the service for whom the service was something special and fine (Taub, Richard P., 1969). The aim of this paper is to analyze the political role of Colonial bureaucracy in un-divided India. It is argued that Colonial bureaucracy was established to strengthen the Colonial rule in India. Nevertheless, it became the source of strength and weakness for the British. It worked like a machine and ignored the feelings and sentiments of people. Their working style created a sense of deprivation among various communities and thus, they began to resist the bureaucratic rule over India.
