The Panchayats.


WE have so far dealt with that part of the Resolution which deals with the constitution and powers of municipalities and district and sub-district boards. The ultimate unit of the administration, however, is the village, and the Resolution would be incomplete if it did not lay down the lines of future village administration. "The points to which the Government of India attach most importance," says the Resolution, "are the association of principal village officers with the Panchayat and informal election of other members by the villagers themselves. They would, however, allow the panchayat to choose is own President and would not render it obligatory that the President should be the village headman as suggested by the Decentralisation Commission."
