Whereas, at present there is only one Panchayat Secretary to a Group of Villages, service delivery is getting affected and Gram Panchayat Administration is being hampered. The Panchayat Secretaries are also facing hardship as they have to look after administrative matters of more than one Gram Panchayat in the Cluster as well functions of Village Secretariats. Therefore, the Government desires that each Gram Panchayat shall be equipped with one Panchayat Secretary to reach out to the public, for effective Service Delivery and for better coordination between Gram Panchayat and Village Secretariats.

The Grade-V Panchayat Secretaries, on their posting as Panchayat Secretary to Gram Panchayat are entrusted with the powers / functions and duties that are being exercised/ executed by Grade-I to Grade-IV Panchayat Secretaries in the Gram Panchayat administration.
