Any developing system of administration gives importance to the existence of a mechanism for handling the results of the administrative faults, and the recognition of the right of every member of the society to know what happens in the government files.

Maladministration refers to the actions of a government body which can be seen as causing an injustice. History has shown us many instances of corruption, abuse of power, and nepotism in public administration. The system of modern administration is no exception to these problems.

Complaints of maladministration, corruption, inefficiency delay, bias in public administration, etc, have now started increasing.
