Correct Answer - Option 2 : 5th Round

The correct answer is the 5th Round.

  •  5th round of the elections held for Panchayati Raj Institutions in AP. Hence option 2 is correct.
  • The 1st Local body elections to Municipalities and Panchayat Raj Institutions were held in March 1995. The 2nd and 3rd Local Body elections were held in 2000-2001 and 2005-2006 respectively. The 4th ordinary elections to Gram Panchayats were held in July 2013.
  • Features of the 73rd Amendment Act:
    • Gram Sabha may exercise such powers and perform such functions at the village level as the Legislature of a State may, by law, provide.
    • There shall be constituted in every State, Panchayats at the village, intermediate, and district levels in accordance with the provisions of this Part.
    • Panchayats at the intermediate level may not be constituted in a State having a population not exceeding twenty lakhs.
    • All the seats in a Panchayat shall be filled by persons chosen by direct election from territorial constituencies in the Panchayat area and, for this purpose, each Panchayat area shall be divided into territorial constituencies in such manner that the ratio between the population of each constituency and the number of seats allotted to it shall, so far as practicable, be the same throughout the Panchayat area.
    • The Legislature of a State may, by law, provide for the representation of the Chairpersons of the Panchayats at the village level, intermediate level, or, in the case of a State not having Panchayats at the intermediate level, in the Panchayats at the district level.
