Schemes under Ministry of Panchayati Raj

Ministry of Panchayati Raj

The Ministry of Panchayati Raj, a vital arm of the Indian government, was established in May 2004 to oversee all matters concerning local self-governance and institutions. Its primary focus is on empowering Panchayati Raj bodies, which represent the grassroots level of governance in rural areas. These bodies receive grants from the ministry to fund essential civic projects such as road construction, drainage systems, water supply, and street lighting, among others. Essentially, the ministry plays a crucial role in bridging the gap between the central and local governments, ensuring that communities receive the necessary support for their development.

In India’s federal system, power is distributed between the Union Government and various State Governments. However, with the enactment of the 73rd and 74th Constitutional Amendments in 1993, a new dimension was added to this distribution: the inclusion of Local Self Governments. This shift decentralized power further, bringing decision-making closer to the people through Panchayats in villages, and Municipalities and Municipal Corporations in towns and cities. Thus, India now boasts a three-tiered governance structure, reinforcing the principles of democracy and grassroots participation.
