ORDER:-

 

As per Article 243-G and 243-W of the Constitution the Legislature of a State may endow the Panchayats and Municipalities with such powers and authority as may be necessary to enable them to function as Institutions of Self Government and such law may contain provisions for the devolution of powers and responsibilities upon local bodies at the appropriate level in regard to:

 

a)      the preparation of plans for economic development and social justice;

 

b)      the implementation of schemes for economic development and social justice as may be entrusted to them including those in relation to the matters listed in the eleventh schedule and twelth schedule.

 

Accordingly, in tune with Constitutional provisions, the Andhra Pradesh Panchayat Raj Act, 1994 was enacted which has come into force with effect from 30.5.1994.

 

The aim of the Constitution is to decentralize the administration upto the grass-roots level as it is believed that democracy is best helped by more democracy and not by less democracy and also that India which is presently a representative democracy is to be transformed into a vibrant participatory democracy. The elected representatives of the local bodies are associated in some aspect or other in respect of some programmes of certain departments but the spirit of the constitution is that the programme should be implemented by the local bodies instead of local bodies merely getting associated with them.

 

To make the Local Bodies Institutions, a Self Government; it is felt necessary to devolve funds, functions and transfer of Functionaries from the Government to the Local Bodies.

 

Government after careful consideration of all the above aspects and taking into consideration the recommendations of the Committee of Secretaries direct that the following subjects of Planning, Review of Progress and monitoring of Biogas, and Improved Chulhas and National Project on Biogas Development and National Project on Improved Chulhas shall be entrusted to Zilla Parish ads.

 

Government also decided that wherever the jurisdiction is not in consonance of the existing Mandal System, that jurisdiction should be re-organised to suit the existing Mandal System.

 

 

 

This orders issues with the concurrence of Finance and Planning Department vide their U.O. No.34343/58/RM&FC/98, dated:2.9.1998.
