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

Thungon Committee-Panchayati Raj 

In 1988, a sub-committee of the Constitutive Committee of Parliament was constituted under the chairmanship of P.K.Thungon to examine the political and administrative structure in the district for the purpose of district planning. This committee suggested the strengthening of the Panchayati Raj system.

Thungon Committee (1988)

Recommendations by Thungon Committee:

  • The Panchayati Raj bodies should be constitutionally recognized.

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

  • Zila Parishad should be the pivot of the Panchayati Raj system. It should act as the planning and development agency in the district.

  • The Panchayati Raj bodies should have a fixed tenure of five years.


  • A planning and coordination committee should be set up at the state level under the chairmanship of the minister for planning. The presidents of Zila Parishads should be its members.

  • A detailed list of subjects for Panchayati Raj should be prepared and incorporated in the Constitution.


  • A state finance commission should be set up in each state. It would lay down the criteria and guidelines for the devolution of finances to the Panchayati Raj institutions.

  • The district collector should be the chief executive officer of the Zila Parishad.
