Governance is a system in which exercise of the legitimate authority of the states does not become the prerogative of elected leaders as selected bureaucrats rather it seeks to ensure the active participation of people in this process in a just, transparent and accountable manner. Governance can be possible in a democracy, which cannot be enforced from the above, but it has to be strengthened at the grassroots level. In the 73rd Amendment, no doubt 29items have been enumerated in the Eleventh Scheduled of the Constitution; but there is no clear functional jurisdiction for PRIs. If the new Panchayati Raj is to be made effective, there is a need to define the powers and functions of each tier distinctively. For Good Governance, the Panchayatiraj government should not rule the people but to enable the people to decide their own needs, The Panchayats have tobe restructured and become accountable to people, transparent of information and improving their performance. The success of governance depends on there invention of government, re-engineering of bureaucracy and re-invigoration of non-government sector with motive and active participation of local rural people.
