dc.description.abstract "The main objective of this paper is to examine the role of bureaucracy as a negative factor in empowerment of people through Panchayati Raj in Madhya Pradesh. Section one gives a brief introduction of PRIs in MP since 73rd amendment Act and features of MP Panchayati Raj Act. Section two examines the extent of de-bureaucratization in MP in terms of devolution of powers. The paper argues that bureaucratic attitude towards PRI is conditioned by caste, gender, and social status of sarpanchs rather than institutional mandates to strengthen PRIs. This negative attitude often resulted in delay of fund allocation, indifference towards decisions of Gramsabha, making official procedure complex, etc. Strategies are needed to facilitate better and effective cooperation from the bureaucracy. Corruption has the potential to de-legitimize the system; therefore strong mechanisms of accountability from below and top are needed." en_US
