My Observations

  • The Panchayati Raj system is very concerned for providing a voice for women. 33% of the seats are reserved for them. If they are interested they can challenge men even if they are not allotted.
  • Allotting seats and proper designations are the functions of the administration (Deputy Commissioner). While the contesting is a political process.
  • Two rules referred for Panchayat Raj:
    • Delimitation of Constituencies and Reservation of seats for Women Rules-2002
    • Arunachal Pradesh Panchayati Raj Act-1997
  • Read more about Panchayati Raj for Arunachal Pradesh.
