Convergence of Panchayati Raj Institutions and Community Based Organisations to foster Good Governance: A case study of Bisoi Gram Panchayat in Odisha
Sipra Ram, Dr.Vijaya Lakshmi Mohanty
Abstract
Panchayati Raj Institutions (PRIs) are the third government which is attempting to keep alive the spirit of democratic decentralisation in India. The constitution mandated powers and responsibility to the PRIs to govern the grassroots areas. There are numerous development initiatives taken by the central and state governments every year to eradicate poverty and ensure social security in rural areas however, a lack of cooperation among rural organisations leads to conflict, duplication, and improper implementation of the development programs. To revitalise the PRIs, the participation of grassroots organisations like the Community Based Organisation (CBOs) is crucial. Coordination, cooperation and consultation between the PRIs and CBOs are needed to identify and resolve the local issues. PRI-CBO convergence has tremendous possibility to enhance the eight parameters of good governance by the United Nations. In this regard, the study has been conducted to find out whether the convergence of PRIs and CBOs can foster good governance in Bisoi Gram Panchayat, Odisha.
