[ad_1]

JAMMU: The Jammu and Kashmir administration has approved amendments to the panchayati raj Act to ensure reservation for the other backward classes (OBCs) in the grassroots democratic institutions.
The Administrative Council met in Jammu under the chairmanship of LG Manoj Sinha on Thursday and approved the amendments to the J&K Panchayati Raj Act, 1989, aimed at making it more effective by ensuring transparency in the functioning of the panchayat bodies.
The amendment bill proposes incorporation of definition of OBCs for providing reservation to them, explaining the method of disqualification from membership of ‘halqa panchayat’, and suspension and removal of sarpanch, naib sarpanch and panch by the government.
It also defines the process for removal and conditions of service of the state election commissioner.
Earlier, the draft J&K Panchayati Raj Act (Amendment) Bill-2023 was submitted to the ministry of home affairs, and based on the MHA’s observations, necessary amendments were incorporated in the revised draft of the amendment bill.
