Local Governance and Economic Development

In a large country like India, where a variety of socio-economic circumstances exist, there is a need to recognize decentralization of governance as an integral component of a democratic set-up. The constitution of India clearly demarcates jurisdictions for local governments through the 73rd and 74th Amendments. However, there has been insignificant progress made in making these perfunctory local administrative units into independent and effective governance bodies.

It is in this context that Yugantar has worked towards strengthening local governance by providing informed policy inputs as well as developing policy alternatives based on independent research.
