Overview for Urban Local Self Government in India

No Urban Local self-governments are functioning in the notified towns/cities of Mizoram, meghalaya, Nagaland and Arunachal Pradesh till date. So the urbanites of these states have no participation in the decision-making and implementing processes, though the urbanization in these states is at a faster rate creating urban human problems of complicated nature and the state Governments have not yet implemented the provisions of the Constitution (Seventy-Fourth Amendment) Act, 1992 for the set-up of the Municipalities which are not in keeping with the national goal -democratic decentralized governance and planning processes. The concept of democratic decentralized governance hardly operates states. The book suggests to implements the 74th Constitutional Amendment act, 1992 for a set-up of the urban Governance in the notified towns, to enable the urbanites to participate in decision-making and implementing processes of complicated urban problems affecting directly their daily lives. The book emphasizes people’s empowerment, democratic, decentralized and participative civic governance which the 7th Constitutional Amendment Act envisages. The functions of Stat6e Government and urban Local Self-Governments as partners in a common endeavour to improve the living conditions of the urbanites are emphasized. The volume is full of policy insights into the dynamics of urban local governance. The contributors to the volume have landed in their essays variegated perspectives; descriptive, analytical, logical, empirical and instrumental. The volume will be found useful to students and practitioners of political and administrative systems who are interested in not only understanding the dynamics of urban local governance system but also in identifying solution to the issues and problems concerning effectiveness in the urban governance systems.
