Diploma in Panchayat Level Administration and Development (DPLAD)

IGNOU Diploma in Panchayat Level Administration and Development programme details

In India, the Panchayati Raj System has long been in place. A number of committees were established after independence to offer suggestions for its resurrection. Conflicting interests at numerous levels overshadowed the idea and its application. The Constitutional (73rd Amendment) Act, 1992, which specified the job of reviving the Panchayati Raj System in India, was only passed after extensive discussion spanning decades. More than 3 million individuals were elected at different levels of Panchayati Raj Institutions as a result of this historic legislation, the adoption of Conformity Acts by several states, and the holding of elections in the nation in the middle of the 1990s. While many initiatives are being done by many groups to create awareness programmes for these elected members, there are more than a million development functionaries working alongside elected representatives in these institutions around the nation. The Panchayats have been given tasks and actions that call for specialised knowledge and coordinated action from many development functions. This job is intended to be accomplished by the diploma programme in Panchayat Level Development and Administration offered via remote education. The main goals of this programme are to provide bureaucrats at the panchayat level with the information, abilities, and skills required to improve local democracy and the decentralised planning process. Through a de novo approach, attitude, and action by the panchayat, it also strives to assist them in working with elected representatives in a cooperative and coordinated manner and to facilitate people's participation.
