Social Justice and Panchayati Raj

B.M. Verma (Author)
Synopsis Social Justice in Panchayati Raj has undergone a major change of direction in the light of The constitution Saventy-third Amendment (Act), 1992. in the backdrop of social transformation, social justice inall its dimensions, i.e. fairness, entitlement, equality, and impartiality has been opearationalised through democratic decentralization. For preservation of human rights, and to sustain functional demcocracy, the study analyses the process of political re-structing and examines the institutional changes in the new paradigm of development. In order to find out the gap between policy formation and policy-implimentation, the operastinal dynamics of the New Panchayati Raj Actk has been studied. Further, to achieve the goal of distributive justice, both structural and contextual factors to revitalize the power devolution in favour of weaker sections call for the observance of rule of law. For evolving a sound substructure of democratic government supported by social development, it is necessary to reinvent a new democratic system of government and governed. The author attempts to test the implicit operastion of self-rule in federal polity in the quest of not only the genral investigation of the twin policy goals, “ growth with social justice” and ‘equitable distribution’ but also anticipated form and content of democratric vision in politics. The role performance of street-level bureaucrats and local political executives for eradication of poverty has been scanned towards the aim of designing an integrated system of decentralized administration. The study also suggests new measures for effective development, and management of Panchayati Raj institutions. Policy makers, planners and administrators will find the present study highly valuable.
