Environment, Technology and Decision-Making in Panchayati Raj Institutions

in Panchayati Raj Institutions S N Dubey Panchayati raj institutions are political bodies and, as such, a major concern of the panchayati raj leadership is to get the maximum possible amount of facilities in its own area. Since for most services demand exceeds supply, the decision to allocate services becomes complex, making the existing procedures and criteria governing decisions inadequate. Some kind of strategy has to be adopt ed so that the largest number of groups can be satisfied. This necessarily calls for a compromise approach in the allocation of facilities and services and generates a kind of obligation or reciprocity pattern, This study of Maharashtra examines the considerations which determine decision-making in panchayati raj institutions, identifies the strategies used by decision-makers and explores the basis of the influence structure in these institutions.

According to the 1961 census, the scheduled caste population is about 85 million, or approximately 15 per cent of the total Indian population. Out of the 65 million scheduled castes, 54 million or 90 per cent of the total live in rural areas; whereas 82 per cent of the total Indian population live in villages. In education, the situation of scheduled castes is worse than that of the population at large, although it is similar in general features and trends. About 90 per cent of the scheduled castes population cannot read or write. The corresponding percentage of illiteracy for the general population in India is 73. Further, more than 75 per cent of the population of scheduled castes is engaged in agriculture, while only 67 per cent of the general population is engaged in agricultural pursuits. The population of agricultural labourers is considerably higher among scheduled castes than in the general population. About 34.5 per cent of the active scheduled caste population work as agricultural labourers, while 16.7 per cent of the total active population in India constitutes agricultural labourers (Aries, 1971: 39-64).
