News & Events

Rural Development Department in fact attains the present stature courtesy Panchayai Raj Institutions (PRIs) in Jammu and Kashmir State. Initially during the regime of Maharaja Hari Singh, PRIs in a modest way were introduced in the State and several powers also bestowed on them for raising of taxes and non-taxes besides funding for addressing the infrastructural needs of the rural community.

  With the country having attained independence and a democratic order ushered in, PRIs in the State of Jammu and Kashmir came to the fore front for shouldering the massive responsibility of building rural infrastructure by way of funds apportioned to them by the State Government as also on the basis of the various taxes and revenues raised for replenishment of the State’s own resources for creating durable community infrastructure.


Synergy between different departments also was working for the upliftment through this medium under the aegis of Panchayati Raj and extension work also massively carried out through Panchayats in conjunction with different line Departments for popularising various technologies and scientific tools for bringing about socio-economic transformation of the rural society.


Review meeting held under the Chairmanship of Chief Secreatry for devolution of Powers to the Panchayats and matters related thereto .
