Client: Ministry of Panchayati Raj

Scale: 26 States and 5 Union Territories

Objective: Ministry of Panchayati Raj (MoPR) oversees the implementation of Part IX of the Constitution, relating to the Panchayats or Panchayati Raj Institutions (PRIs). MoPR works as a facilitator to enable States to promote efficient, accountable and transparent functioning of the PRIs.
MoPR regularly undertakes a qualitative and quantitative self-assessment in the form of a State of Panchayati Raj Report (SoPR), of the progress achieved in terms of empowerment of PRIs in the respective State / UT, allowing for comparisons to be made and good practices and lessons to be disseminated. SoPR has been published in 2006, 2007-08 and 2008-09. MoPR awarded the contract for publication of the next edition of the SoPR for 2010-11 to a consortium led by NR Management Consultants.
The study covered 26 states and 5 UTs as Nagaland, Mizoram and Meghalaya do not have PRIs.
