ग्राम पंचायत / Village Panchayat

ग्राम पंचायत / Village Panchayat is a rural local body working for the welfare of the village. Panchayati Raj is a system of governance in which Gram Panchayat are the basic units of administration. The number of members usually ranges from 3 to 31; occasionally, groups are larger, but they never have fewer than seven members. The council leader is named Sarpanch in Hindi, and each of the five members is a Gram Panchayat Sadasya or Panch. In such a system, each villager can voice his opinion in the governance of his village. Decisions are taken without long legal procedure.

Panchayat is the name of the local government system in India. Panchayat means a group of "Five Persons". In simple words, a Panchayat is a council of elders representing a village. The Panchayat system covers the village level (Gram Panchayat), clusters of villages (block Panchayat) and the district level (District Panchayat).
