How is Gram Panchayat formed?
Gram Panchayat is formed in the following manner:
- Every village Panchayat is divided into wards, i.e. smaller areas.
- Each ward elects a representative who is known as the Ward Member (Panch).
- All the members of the Gram Sabha also elect a Sarpanch who is the Panchayat President.
- The Ward Panchs and the Sarpanch form the Gram Panchayat.
