About the Book :

The Tamil Nadu Panchayats Acts was enacted and brought in force in April 1994, and Rules under the Act were issued from time to time during the years from 1997 to 2004. How ever, these Rules are not codified into a manual, and are not readily available to the Panchayati Raj functionaries, and the public. This handbook is an attempt towards fulfilling that gap. It contains the 73rd Amendment Act to the Constitution of India; Tamil Nadu Panchayats Act, 1994 Rules and Instructions common to the three tiers of Panchayat; Rules and Instructions Relation to Village Panchayat; Rules Relating to Panchayat Union Council; Rules and Instruction Relating to District Planning Committee; Tamil Nadu Right to Information Act, 1997; Right to Information Act, 2005 of Government of India; and Tamil Nadu Transparency in Tenders Act, 198. Due Care has been taken in incorporating the provisions of the Act and the Rules issued under the Act. However, the users are advised to refer to the Gazette notifications and original orders.
