Book Description Cambridge University Press, New Delhi, India, 2014. Hardcover. Book Condition: New. Dust Jacket Condition: New. This book examines the empowerment of citizens in general and of the poor and marginalized groups in particular by the process of decentralization. It discusses the precise role of Panchayat and local governance on the quantity and quality of services. Some of the findings include long term impacts of political reservation for women positive relationship between local revenue generation and quality of governance significant welfare gains due to parochial politics and even bribes. The mechanisms through which improvements in governance are achieved include Gram Sabha meetings with specific agenda related to services participation of households in such meetings and the impact of specific institutions such as VECs VWUSCs and the Pani Panchayats. The authors are able to prove that a positive relationship exists between the quality of services and increasing local revenues. The large number of tied grants that Panchayats receive has long been criticized as leading to a general constriction of choices left with the Panchayats to be able to effectively allocate expenditures. Most importantly the book quantifies the impact of Panchayats in terms of the ability of households to reduce vulnerability and transit out of poverty.Printed Pages: 384.
