Chandigarh, July 21

Working on reorganising the administrative limits of the existing panchayats in Haryana, the government is all set to carve out over 70 new panchayats in the state. The empowered committee constituted for the same is likely to meet shortly after last week’s meeting had to be postponed.

Sources in the Development and Panchayats Department said, while the limits of 69 panchayats had already been worked out and would be taken up in the meeting of the reorganisation committee to be held under the chairmanship of Deputy CM Dushyant Chautala, a call is likely to be taken on another 20 panchayats shortly.

The other members of the committee include Education Minister Kanwar Pal Gujjar and Minister of State Banwari Lal. The same committee is also looking into the reorganisation of subdivisions, tehsils and blocks among others.

Sources said a maximum of 21 such cases had been received from Yamunanagar, 9 from Kurukshetra, 4 each from Fatehabad and Nuh, 3 each from Mahendragarh, Sonepat, Ambala, Bhiwani, Jind and Faridabad. Five districts have sent cases for creation of 2 panchayats each while Hisar, Charkhi Dadri and Gurugram have sent 1 case each.

Sources said the department was still unclear on whether the committee should consider these cases rightaway since the Census department has, in a communication, frozen the administrative boundaries till March 31 next year for carrying out the Census operations.
