Description

The present system of panchayats in India, mandated by the 73rd Constitutional Amendment in 1993, was created in the midst of the post-1991 'liberalization' of the state-centric economy. This short introduction presents a balanced and complete picture of the philosophy, objectives, evolution, successes, and failures of these institutions in the last two decades. Contextualizing the panchayats in their larger institutional, functional, and ideological framework, this book outlines the critically important roles they will play in future.
