Dynamics of New Panchayati Raj System in India, Volume VII: Financial Status of Panchayats

G Palanithurai (Author)
Synopsis This volume deals with the financial status of panchayats in Indian states. Across the country states are not giving adequate attention to fiscal devolution towards the panchayats. Panchayats are facing series of crises and mostly they are financial in nature. Since the State Governments are facing financial crisis they are not in a position to devolve adequate resources to the panchayats. Recommendations of the State Finance Commissions have not been implemented. Despite provisions in the Constitution, many states are reluctant even to constitute State Finance Commissions. Some of the State Finance Commissions have submitted their reports but there was no action on the part of the state governments. Only a few states are committed to financial devolution. Experiences of the states have been captured and analysed.
