Jammu and Kashmir Panchayati Raj Act approved
22 oct 2020
The Union Cabinet has approved the adoption of Jammu and Kashmir Panchayati Raj Act, 1989. This will help establish all the three tiers of grassroot level democracy like in other parts of the country. Now, early elections will take place and the power to manage local bodies will go to the people. Elected representatives will have the power to manage district and block level planning. This will also help in increasing demand and consumption in festive season through disbursed bonuses.
