The Nyaya Panchayat in West Bengal


One of the far reaching changes introduced in politics and public administration in post-independence India is the Panchayati Raj. This new scheme embodies the thoughts and aspirations of the Indian people who had been promised by their leaders, a democratically decentralized* system of administration substituting the centralized bureaucratic system of the British Raj. The innovations will also affect the judicial administration in the country. Gandhiji repeatedly asserted that free India would have to revive some of the best elements of ancient Indian political life.
