    • Defaulters of cooperative loans will be debarred from contesting the elections to Panchayati Raj Institutions.
  • The bill was brought on the floor of the Assembly by the state’s Agriculture Minister OP Dhankar.

    • The scheme was inaugurated by the then P.M. Jawahar Lal Nehru on October 2, 1959, in Nagaur district in Rajasthan.
  • 73rd Amendment Act of 1992 gives constitutional status to the Panchayati Raj institutions.
