- Fairness is a major principle of justice, which means that the decision-maker should make any decision based only on objective reasons, not having a prejudicial interest or value in favor of or favoring a party needed. Fairness in public services and public servants means that in order to increase public confidence and effectively implement public welfare programs, it is necessary to have unbiased, fair treatment in them. All citizens have a sense of interest in the concept of public service. Equal and positive treatment of citizens and community members in such circumstances
Should be It should not be discriminated against on the basis of religion, sex, species, language, caste, property, clan, friendship, province etc. It is from such fair behavior that people believe and trust in the government and public servants is also mentioned in the Indian Constitution.
Public servants are expected to implement government policies within the ambit of the Constitution and the law. But in the situation, discretion is also used. Decisions and work of discretion should always be done impartially. In which decision and action should not be taken after taking into account nepotism, caste, religion, gender etc. Public interest and national interest should be kept in mind while implementing government policies and schemes.
Example- If an examiner is checking answer books and his son's answer sheet is also in the answer sheets, which is actually third in terms of merit. In such a situation, the following situations may occur in front of the examiner-
1) He should increase the marks of the son so that the son gets first place, which will be a favor.
2) The examiner is feeling that when the son comes first, people will see him with suspicion. In this situation, the son's marks should be further reduced to eighth and ninth place. It is also biased in negative statements, in which the examiner damages his son for showing himself to be impartial.
3) While examining the answer sheet, the examiner should not take into consideration which answer book is whose and who has got the place, give the result according to the actual rank and that is the fairness.
Fairness is not always possible given the current circumstances. Because welfare programs are conducted in India, it is also necessary to bring the lower classes into the mainstream of the development of the state, but this partiality may be desirable in the social interest. It should not be in the interest of any person but in the interest of society. For example, reservations have been arranged to improve the condition of the lower classes in India.
