e-Panchayat Puraskar

The level of e-enablement in PRIs varies across States/UTs due to variations in the level of infrastructure, manpower and capacity in PRIs across the country which pose challenges in the implementation of the project. Experience over the past few years has shown various instances where the States/UTs have come up with innovative ways of overcoming these challenges. This clearly indicates that the adoption of the Panchayat Enterprise Suite (PES) Applications is primarily determined by the ownership demonstrated by the States/UTs and the initiatives undertaken at local level to overcome challenges.

                 The Ministry of Panchayati Raj incentivizes States/UTs to increasingly adopt the PES Applications to improve the day-to-day functioning of the PRIs. The Ministry, through the annual e-Panchayat Puraskars, recognizes the best performing States/UTs annually on the occasion of National Panchayat Day. The winners of the e-Panchayat Puraskar are mentioned below:
