Panchayati Raj System is best suited to our rural needs and administration. It is a right step towards devaluation and decentralization of power. It deserves all help and encouragement as it is a truly representative and democratic system. As a fit and effective instrument of self-governance, it is matchless. Now, Panchayati Raj institutions are there in almost all the Indian States with three tier arrangement at village, block and district levels. The present study was conducted in Fatehabad district of Haryana. Therefore 200 respondents constituted the sample for the study. The findings indicated that the respondents who were highly exposed to mass-media had high level awareness as compared to those who were less exposed. The maximum numbers of the respondents had low level of social participation. This group of respondents had low awareness than the respondents who belonged to high social participation group. If social participation level of the respondents increases the awareness among respondents also increases.

Abstract


Panchayati Raj System is best suited to our rural needs and administration. It is a right step towards devaluation and decentralization of power. It deserves all help and encouragement as it is a truly representative and democratic system. As a fit and effective instrument of self-governance, it is matchless. Now, Panchayati Raj institutions are there in almost all the Indian States with three tier arrangement at village, block and district levels. The present study was conducted in Fatehabad district of Haryana. Therefore 200 respondents constituted the sample for the study. The findings indicated that the respondents who were highly exposed to mass-media had high level awareness as compared to those who were less exposed. The maximum numbers of the respondents had low level of social participation. This group of respondents had low awareness than the respondents who belonged to high social participation group. If social participation level of the respondents increases the awareness among respondents also increases.
