This study attempts to review the role Panchayati Raj Institutions play in democratising the decision making process at the local levels and in mobilising the people for social and economic development. Based on an intensive research on the functioning of the Panchayati Raj Institutions in the state of Haryana, the book deals with a range of issues including the legal basis of the Panchayati Raj Institutions, the electoral process that has brought new leadership to the forefront; the social and economic background of the elected representatives, the way they function and the role they play; the motivations that prompt them for action or no action and the reforms still needed to make the system work in accordance with letter and spirit of the Constitution of India. Although the study is confined to the state of Haryana, its conclusions have larger and systemic relevance. It reveals that Constitutional amendments and follow up state laws did make some differences, particularly with respect to the representation of the marginalized people. But as far as the working of the institutions is concerned, there is much to be desired. It finds a nexus between law, social milieu, economic structure, and host of other factors that go to make a society. The book will be useful for the students, researchers, administrators, policy makers and development agencies. Printed Pages: 180.
