Jaipur to host three-day conference on Panchayati Raj System
A three-day national conference on "Decentralisation in Panchayati Raj System: Challenges and Issues Regarding Public Awareness in Rajasthan" is going to be organized from September 18 to 20 in Jaipur at the Parishkar College of Global excellence with a focus on democratic decentralization as right to frame and execute the plans regarding the welfare of public at the local level.
According to the organisers of the conference, the aim of the seminar is to explore and evaluate the status of the functions and impact of the prevalent Pachayati Raj Institutions (PRIs). Also, the discussions will take place on extent to which PRIs have been able to achieve their objectives and the ground realities of their performance as democratic units of self-governance.

Furthermore, the issues of the public conscience, awareness and participation will be dwelled upon during the conference.

The themes of the conference are related to the problems and issues in functioning of PRIs, roles of PRI representatives; participation of women, youth and deprived groups in PRIs; possibilities and challenges of leadership at the grassroot level.

The rights of PRIs under 3Fs (Funds, Functions and Functionaries) to optimize decentralization will be scrutinized. It is being felt that decentralization cannot succeed without proper awareness and public participation since these two aspects are the bedrocks of democracy.
