“The future of India lies in its villages.” - Mahatma Gandhi

With the primary vision of rural management, development and empowerment, India adopted Panchayati Raj as a system of governance in 1992. Ever since, the system has played the backbone of rural administration in India to develop and manage several spheres of rural life, such as education, health, agriculture, women and child development, etc. The Panchayati Raj system has undoubtedly achieved several milestones based on varied goalposts in strengthening rural India. However, with continually changing dynamics of time, the system of governance has grown space to accommodate enhancement and expansion.

MyGov Assam seeks suggestions from citizens on ways strengthen the Panchayati Raj system in Assam in order to serve the requirements of modern changes.

Now, the share of the central government in construction is 90

For maintenance, the states continue to be responsible for 100 percent funding.
Routine maintenance for 5 years after construction is the responsibility of the
same contractor who is entrusted with the task of PMGSY road projects (both
new connectivity and upgradation).
