Prime Minister Narendra Modi will address the Panchayati Raj Sammelan on the occasion of National Panchayati Raj Day on April 24 at Jamshedpur in Jharkhand.
 
Union Minister of Rural Development, Panchayati Raj & Drinking water & Sanitation Birender Singh and Jharkhand Chief Minister  Raghuvar Das are among those slated to be present on the occasion.
 
An official press release said around 3,000 Panchayat Representatives from all states of the country will participate in the event.
 
Mr. Modi's address to the gathering will be beamed live to all the Gram Sabhas across the country. 
 
The Ministry of Panchayati Raj has been celebrating the National Panchayati Raj Day (NPRD) on 24 April since 2010, as it was on this day in 1993 that the 73rd Constitutional Amendment came into force.
 
The Prime Minister will present awards on the occasion to Kerala, Maharashtra, Karnataka and Sikkim for devolution of maximum powers to Panchayats so far (Cumulative Devolution Index awards) and to Andhra Pradesh, Sikkim and Odisha for devolution of maximum powers to Panchayats in the last three years (Incremental Devolution Index awards) .
 
Madhya Pradesh and Gujarat will be given awards for making the greatest progress in aligning their laws to Panchayat Extension to Scheduled Areas Act 1996. These awards are being given for the first time.
 
Karnataka, Kerala, West Bengal and Assam will receive awards for making maximum efforts to e-enable Panchayats.
 
A new ‘Mandate of the Ministry of Panchayati Raj’ will be released along with the ‘Devolution Index Report’ by the Prime Minister on this occasion. 
 
Gram Sabha meetings will be held across the country (except in poll-bound states) from April 21-24 to celebrate National Panchayati Raj Day.
 
The Central Government, in collaboration with State Governments and Panchayats, launched the ‘Gramoday se Bharat Uday Abhiyan’. The campaign began with Dr. Bhimrao Ambedkar’s 125th birth anniversary on 14th April, and will culminates with the Panchayati Raj Day on 24th April.
