Panchayat System and Rural Development in West Bengal

Besides land reforms programme a large number of issues have been raised by the author while reviewing Kirsten Wester- gaard's report on rural development in West Bengal. It may be noted that the report presents the results of a survey in four gram panchayat areas, two in Birbhum and one each in Bankura and Murshidabad districts. Certain sweeping generalisations have been made both in A Ghosh's note and in Wester- gaard's report on land reforms in West Bengal.
