The Genesis of Panchayati Raj and its Dimensions

The Genesis of Panchayati Raj and its Dimensions

ABSTRACT

Panchayati Raj is one of the major components of self rule with power to the masses at the grass root level. Initially it did not gain importance as it should have in the system of government when India became independent. However, with time it was realized the major role played by Panchayati Raj. Several steps were then undertaken to rectify the shortcomings. With the implementation of the 73rd Amendment Act Panchayati Raj constitutes a major mile stone in the history of rural local self government as it provides political and administrative decentralization and devolution of resources and power to local people.
