National Panchayati Raj Day: 24 April


The National Panchayati Raj Day is observed on 24th April every year. 

India celebrates the first National Panchayati Raj Day or the National Local Government Day on April 2010.

The reason for celebrating Panchayati Raj day is the 73rd Constitution Amendment Act, 1992. The passing of the 73rd Constitution Amendment Act, 1992 came into force with effect from 24 April 1993. So the National Panchayati Raj Diwas (Day) is celebrated every year in India on 24th April.

Rajasthan was the first state in the country where the Panchayati Raj system was implemented. This scheme was inaugurated by late Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru on October 2, 1959, in Nagaur district.
