In 1993, Panchayati Raj or the rule of the Panchayats (local governing bodies at the village level) was constitutionally mandated. Decentralization of governance and service delivery became central to the transformation of state-society relations in the liberalization era. This book is a comprehensive and accessible account of the philosophy, objectives, achievements, failures, and future of Panchayati institutions in the last two decades.
