Author(s)
Dr. Pradip Kumar Jha
Abstract
Panchayats are the primary unit of self-governance, development and empowerment of weaker sections at the village level. It is considered as an agency of democracy, development and inclusion of weaker sections. The 73rd constitutional amendment has opened space for participation of weaker sections in the structure of local governance. It has ensured their representation in Panchayats at village level. It does not ensure their qualitative participation in the process of decision-making and exercising power at the village level. Attempt is made to analyze as to how and to what extent the weaker sections are participating in the process of decision-making and exercising power at Panchayat level.
