Which of the following according to you involve decentralisation? Why are other options not sufficient for decentralisation?

A. To hold election of the Gram Panchayat.

B. Decision by the villagers themselves about what policies and programmes are useful for the village.

C. Power to call meeting of Gram Sabha.

D. A Gram Panchayat receiving the report from the Block Development Officer about the progress of a project started by the State government.

Answer :

According to me point D. Involve decentralization that the Gram Panchayat, receiving the report from the Block Development officer about the progress of a project started by the State government, it is the demonstration of the working of decentralisation.


The other three options do not occupy decentralisation because elections can take place, meeting can be conducted and projects can be monitored. All these features are not related to the decision making process which proves to be an important aspect of decentralisation.
