Maharashtra govt. to convene Gram Sabhas in all Gram Panchayats while strictly adhering to COVID-19 protocols

In Maharashtra, the State government today gave its nod to convene the Gram Sabhas in all the Gram Panchayats by strictly adhering to the social distancing and COVID-19 protocol. Informing about the decision, Rural Development Minister Hasan Mushrif said, as per the Maharashtra Gram Panchayat Act it is mandatory to convene a minimum of four Gram Sabhas in a financial year.
If the Gram Sabha as mandated by the Act is not convened then the Sarpanch, Deputy Sarpanch and Gram Sevak are held accountable and subsequently action can be initiated against them.
However, to stop the spread of COVID-19 the Central and State governments issued orders and notifications from time to time banning various social, political gatherings and meetings.
With this, organising Gram Sabhas were also suspended on a temporary basis in the State. Taking into account the easing of lockdown restrictions, life is returning back to normalcy and hence organising Gram Sabhas is being permitted, Mushrif said.
The Gram Panchayats are considered the third tier of governance and therefore, organising Gram Sabha as are of paramount importance.
