Facilitating Local Governance

English, PP: 109, PDF: 994KB

The concept of decentralization has rapidly occupied an important place in international discourse on local governance over the past few decades. This concept has different attributes, including political, economic, administrative and fiscal decentralisation. Yet, in the Indian context, the political decentralisation has been at the core of rural developmental governance. The 73rd amendment has provided the necessary pace and constitutional backing for the process of devolution of powers to Panchayati Raj Institutions, especially the Gram Panchayat. Thus participation became a right, and Gram Sabha an accessible forum for citizens to make known their opinions in the process of decision making at a local level.
