National Panchayati Raj Day – History and Significance

The National Panchayati Raj Day is celebrated in order to commemorate the historic day on which the Constitution act (73rd amendment) was passed in the year 1992. The Former Prime Minister Of India, Manmohan Singh declared the first National Panchayati Raj Day in the year 2010 on 24th April.

A committee was formulated in the year 1957 which focused on the evolution of Panchayati Raj in India and Balwant Rai Mehta was appointed as a man of this committee. The committee recommended a decentralized hierarchy:

  • Gram Panchayat at the village level
  • Panchayat Samiti at the block level
  • Zila Parishad at the district level

Rajasthan became the first state where the Panchayat Raj System was executed in the year 1959.

The prime minister of a country every year talks to the representatives of Gram Panchayat. The PM also conducts a discussion with the representatives to take a report on the progress. Prime Minister Narendra Modi called for an end to the practics of “husbands of women sarpanches/sarpanch pati” that will undo the influence on the work of their wives elected to power as he addressed the Elected representatives on 24th April 2015.
