Public policy is the policy which is adopted by government in order to ensure the welfare of the society as a whole. Public policy formulated and implemented by the policy makers in order to achieve the economic growth rate in terms of increase per capita income. Any public policy which ensures the higher economic growth rate can be regarded as effective and successful one is still a debatable issue. Only by ensuring high economic growth does not mean that development is there because development is not only depending on increasing the availability of goods and services rather it is also related to improving the lives of people. Policies that are undertaken at the expense of culture bring rootless growth in economy. This is one of the negative growths out of the five growths which proves to be detrimental for the society as it ensures the higher economic growth rate but at the risk of people’s identity and their traditional values. From the last few years, government implemented various policies that only aim at bringing uniformity in diversified culture that exists in India. But in emerging economy like India, where language changes at every 10 km so bringing homogenous policy is not a good measure by the government. Government should come up with those public policies which take into consideration the cultural values. Diversity in plants and animals are valuable resource for any economy in the same way diversified culture offers a chance to look at the world differently through different ways. Policy should be adopted which ensures the quality instead of quantity of the growth.
