"We are responsible for what we are, and whatever we wish ourselves to be, we have the power to make ourselves. If what we are now has been the result of our own past actions, it certainly follows that whatever we wish to be in future can be produced by our present actions; so we have to know how to act. "
-- Swami Vivekananda

Village sarpanch responsibilities

  Posted By: IndiaEyeWitness.Com
State: Any State   District: Any District   City: Any Gram Panchayat  

Panchayat Raj & Rural Development Department have given some funds to each village towards water, roads, transportation, education etc. But they are not being utilized properly.

We need to formulate a list of every gram panchayat sarpanch responsibilites. Our group of volunteers will post copy of these all solutions to each sarpanch. We have listed some common issues in every panchayat.

1). The Panchayat Raj Institutions had never been given specific powers responsibilities and funds to carryout their routine functions.

2). Assistance provided by secretaries of Gram Panchayat to the Sarpanch in day-to-day activities should be more useful.

3).For most of the people, at central and State level, decentralization or local self-governance is a goal. There is no disagreement with this assertion. But there is no unanimity about the path to reach there.
Non-congeniality of end result and chosen path leads to undesirable results.

4).There are hardly any funds for the discretionary use by the elected Sarpanches, i.e. to take up locally needed activities at locally required time. The table below shows typical flow of funds in a village Panchayat

5). The central problem is lack of scope for utilization of the local skills and knowledge

6). Devolution of Powers, Functions and Responsibilities
