News & Events
Department in fact attains the present stature
courtesy Panchayai Raj Institutions (PRIs) in Jammu and Kashmir State.
Initially during the regime of Maharaja Hari Singh, PRIs in a modest way
were introduced in the State and several powers also bestowed on them for
raising of taxes and non-taxes besides funding for addressing the
infrastructural needs of the rural community.
Synergy between different departments also was working for the upliftment through this medium under the aegis of Panchayati Raj and extension work also massively carried out through Panchayats in conjunction with different line Departments for popularising various technologies and scientific tools for bringing about socio-economic transformation of the rural society.
