Uttar Pradesh Kshettra Panchayats and Zila Panchayats Adhiniyam, 1961
Section/Order/Article/Rule/Regulation Head Note
Section 9, 15(13)

It intends to empower the Panchayats and that is why, Section 9 clearly provides that the term of the office of Pramukh is for five years from the date appointed for its first meeting. That brings stability to the administration of the Gram Panchayat. Simultaneously, it also provides that the democracy at the rural level must cherish the values of democracy and, therefore, a Pramukh can be removed when a vote of no confidence is passed against him. Once the no confidence motion fails, it cannot be brought again for one year. It is worthy to note here that subsection (13) of Section 15 provides that no notice of a motion under Section 15 shall be received within two years of the assumption of office by a Pramukh. This is in consonance with the principle of stability of rural governance. There are provisions for removal in case of misconduct and certain other situations with which we are not concerned. The appeal, being devoid of merit, stands dismissed. There shall be no order as to costs. .....Kiran Pal Singh =VS= The State of Uttar Pradesh, (Civil), 2018 (2) [5 LM (SC) 203] ....View Full Judgment
