1. In India, local governance system has existed since ancient times. In those times each village had a self-administered governance system. The village governance was shouldered by the Panchas (five wise leaders). The village community used to select the panchas unanimously to govern the village affairs. The important criteria followed in the selection of panchas were: person’s character, truthfulness, benevolence, non-favouritism and capability of delivering justice without prejudice or bias. The intention in adopting this method was to have unity and harmony among diverse groups of people in the village to enhance  co-operation between the people.

2. The philosophy of Mahatma Gandhi and Lok Nayak Jayaprakash Narayan on local governance is enshrined in Article 40 of the Constitution of India, which lays down that the State shall take steps to organize village panchayats and endow them with such powers and authority as may be necessary to enable them to function as units of self-government. Dr. Baba Saheb Ambedkar also shared the same vision.

3. If elections to Gram Panchayat are held on party basis, there is a possibility that political rivalry, enmity and Intense animosity may grow  among competing parties, thereby hampering harmony and speedy development.

4. A large number of states such as Gujarat, Haryana, Himachal Pradesh, Telangana and Punjab continued to have election to Grama Panchayats on a non-political party basis.Some states have adopted innovative methods to encourage party-less and unanimous elections at the village panchayat level. In Himachal Pradesh, the non-party based election is adopted not only at the GP level but also at Panchayat Samithi (Block) level and in Gujarat, unanimous election is conferred with the privilege of an award of money to the GP from the state government, under the Samras Scheme, with financial grants given to each GP varying between Rs.2.0 lakh and Rs.5.0 lakh. The Government of Haryana too implementing a similar scheme.

5. Similarly, in the reference 1st read above, Government of Andhra Pradesh with a view to encourage unanimous elections for the post of Sarpanchas and members of Grama Panchayats during 2nd Ordinary elections to Panchyat Raj Institutions, issued incentive awards to such of the Grama Panchayats where the elections to the office of the Sarpanchas and ward members is unanimous @ following amounts.  This would facilitate concentrating the energies of the Gama Panchayats to do developmental work  in the Panchayats:
