Abstract:

The present study was conducted in Ratnagiri district of Maharashtra. All nine tahsils of Ratnagiri district were selected for the study. Ten Grampanchayat were selected by random sampling method from each of tahsils of Ratnagiri district. Considering the objectives and other aspects of the study, it was decided to study the heads of Panchayat Raj Institutions currently working in the office. Thus, one President of Zilla Parishad, Nine Panchayat Samiti Sabhapati and Ninety Gram Panchayat Sarpanch were the respondents for the study. The data were collected with the help of structured interview schedule. Personal technique was used for data collection. Thus the total sample size was 100. “Lack of technical and service support from development agencies” (78.00 per cent), was the major constraint in their day to day work, followed by “high cost of agricultural inputs” (76.00 per cent), and “lack of information about development scheme” (74.00 per cent). Majority (78.00 per cent) of heads of panchayat raj institutions suggested “economically weaker section should be the only criteria for benefits of various schemes”, followed by “need of orientation and frequent refresher training for playing a active and responsible role” (76.00 per cent), “considering the geographical conditions of Konkan there is need for enhancement of grants for all schemes” (75.00 per cent), and “timely allotment of funds and subsidy” (74.00 per cent).
