Gadgil Committee (1988) - Panchayati Raj (Rural Economics)

Gadgil Committee - Panchayati Raj

The committee on Policy and Programmes was constituted in 1988 by the Congress Party under the chairmanship of V.N. Gadgil. This committee was asked to consider the question of "how best Panchyati Raj institutions could be made effective".

Gadgil Committee (1988)

Recommendations by Gadgil Committee:

  • A constitutional status should be bestowed on the Panchayati Raj institutions.

  • A three-tier system of the Panchayati Raj with panchayats at the village, block, and district levels.

  • The members of Panchayats at all three levels should be directly elected.

  • Reservations for SCs, STs, and women.

  • The Panchayati Raj bodies should have the responsibility of preparing and implementation plans for socio-economic development. For this purpose, a list of the subjects should be specified in the constitution.

  • Establishment of a State Finance Commission for the allocation of finances to the Panchayats.

  • Establishment of a State Election Commission for the conduction of elections to the panchayats.

The above recommendations of the Gadgil Committee became the basis for drafting an amendment bill aimed at conferring the constitutional status and protection to the Panchayat Raj institutions.
