Abstract:

A good deal of work in establishing closer linkage between research and extension has been done in the last few years. The result of painstaking efforts of research scientists have been carried to the farmers by an army of more than 70,000 village extension workers in the major states where professional agricultural extension system is functioning. As defined by Roling (1988) extension is purposeful communication intervention deployed by an institution to induce change in voluntary behaviours with a presumed public or collective utility. The 73rd Amendment provides for an elaborate system of establishing panchayats as units of self-government. There are more than two lakh panchayats across the country represented by more than 30 lakh of elected leaders at all three levels. Out of them, more than six lakh SC/ST's and more than ten lakh women have been holding the office of the members and chairpersons at different tiers of the panchayats. A study was conducted in the purposively selected Rajnandgaon district of Chhattisgarh to ascertain the attitude of panchayat leaders towards the Panchayati Raj Institutions. In all (9 + 54 + 200) 263 panchayat leaders were considered as respondents for the study. An interview schedule was used as a tool for collecting primary data from the respondent panchayat leaders and all the 263 respondents were personally interviewed for collecting the raw information. The most important variable which had negative substantial indirect effect on role performance of gram panchayat leaders was age (- 0.1062) through attitude towards panchayati raj institutions. The variable achievement motivation had highest negative substantial indirect effect (-0.6237) through socio-economic status on role performance of janpad and jila panchayat leaders followed by social participation (-0.2140) through social participation.
