National Panchayati Raj Day is celebrated annually in India by the Ministry of Panchayati Raj on April 24. The day is observed to mark the passing of the 73rd Amendment Act, 1992 to the Constitution.

The Panchayati Raj system is a three-tier administrative structure of the Government of India. It is a decentralised system of governance, where local bodies or Gram Panchayats are given the power for self-governance and to make decisions for development.

According to an official statement from the Ministry of Panchayati Raj, “Since 2014 the Central Government has intensified its efforts to support the Panchayati Raj Institutions (PRIs) in the best manner possible to ensure that the basic objectives of the Panchayati Raj are achieved in true letter and spirit.

Under the visionary leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, India has seen a quantum leap in the allocation of fiscal resources to Panchayati Raj Institutions to support various infrastructure requirements and developmental activities in rural areas.”
