Kerala has been the trend setter for decentralized development in the country. In fact the mooring for the grass roots level decentralized democratic functioning of administration was laid by the first EMS Ministry. In 1997, the government took the bold initiative of transferring power, finance and expertise to Local Self Government institutions to initiate developmental works at the grass roots level. Till then the results of development did not percolate to the lowest strata. Local initiatives and local participation were fully encouraged by the Government of 1996-2001 through decentralisation. The result of this approach was epoch making. The Panchayati Raj System here was hailed as the best in the country. Experts came from inside the country and abroad to see the miracle that happened here. The Government is engaged in consolidating those gains and taking decentralized development to new heights while plugging the loopholes and closing lacunae in the earlier experience.
 
 
Institutionalising the gains of decentralisation and the Peoples Plan Campaign initiated under the imaginative leadership of E.M.S. Namboothirippad, the artict of modern Kerala, during the ninth plan was the main objective of the activities of the Local Self Government Department over the past three years. We have been successful to a great extend in stabilising and carrying forward the spirit of decentralisation and making the Local Self Government Institutions (LSGIs) responsive to the local needs. The decentralisation experiment of Kerala has given a prominent position for the local government institutions with regard to the development of local economy. Besides LSGIs are also the providers of a good number of services to the public. The department aims at enabling the LSGIs to become active players in local economic development and to strengthen their service delivery system. This has to result in transforming the LSGIs into people friendly institutions with a high degree of transparency and efficiency.
