The concept of Panchayats as institutions of self-government: need for a wider debate


Journal of Rural Development Hyderabad 15(2): 261-268
The concept of Panchayats as institutions of self-government: need for a wider debate
A discussion is presented on the need for a closer examination of the implications of viewing Indian panchayati raj institutions as units of self-government, given that the current administrative structure is essentially regulatory rather than developmental. This structure prevents rural poor organizations from emerging and participating in local policy formulation.
