24 April : National Panchayati Raj Diwas
25 April 2016 Current Affairs: Every year April 24 is being observed as National Panchayati Raj (PR) Diwas across India

Significant : It marks the passing of the Constitution (73rd Amendment) Act, 1992 that came into force with effect from 24 April 1993.

Significance of Amendment Act : It had led a defining moment in the history of India which helped in decentralization of political power to the grassroots level. In turn it had led to institutionalization of Panchayati Raj (PR) through the village, Intermediate and District level Panchayats. Every year on this day Union Ministry of Panchayati Raj organises National Conference to commemorate the National Panchayati Raj Diwas. Best performing Gram Panchayats are conferred with Rashtriya Gaurav Gram Sabha Purskar by the Union Ministry of Panchayati Raj.
