Local Government i.e. Panchayats and Municipalities at Grass Root As such, in India, Local Government is the third stratum of the Government, the first two being the central and state Governments. India is known to be the world ˇs largest democracy. In constitutional sense, democracy is the system of Government, in the administration. Tocqueville states that the rest of his book will show how the principle of sovereignty of the people—that is, democratic equality—functions.

He answers that it’s not because they feel inferior to legislators, but because they’ve acknowledged the usefulness of government.

The last local government elections were held in November The next are predicted to be held in November Staff in Local Government Local authority staff is recruited by the respective local councils, which retain the powers also to discipline and dismiss staff. No staff is deployed from central government to local government.
