Panchayati Raj Institutions and Rural Development

Narratives on Inclusion of Excluded

Edited by: U.C. Sahoo, B.C. Barik

India's 73rd Constitutional Amendment provided space for the invisible and excluded categories of people in society to participate with decentralized democratic institutions like Panchayati Raj. Panchayati Raj institutions work at the grassroots level for development in rural Indian communities. In this edited volume, contributors - using a broad interdisciplinary approach - review the micro-macro ground realities of Panchayati Raj institutions in India. The book offers a comprehensive account of development dynamics, participatory governance, and the empowerment of excluded categories of individuals.
