Referring to the recent amendment in J&K Panchayat Raj Act, Lt. Governor allayed the apprehensions that the Panchayat representatives would cease to receive the monthly honorarium by virtue of these amendments in the Panchayat law.

The Lt. Governor also solicited the opinion of Panchayat representatives in increasing the developmental index in Baramulla district.
He said that the union government has recently amended J&K Panchayat Raj Act by virtue of which District Development Councils would be formed in each district so that the people are benefited by the developmental activities planned at the grassroots levels.
