Gram panchayats are panchayats at base level in panchayat raj institutions (or PRIs), governed by the73rd Amendment, which is concerned with Rural Local Governments.
The gram panchayat is divided into wards and each ward is represented by a Ward Member, also referred to as a Panchayat Member, who is directly elected by the villagers. The panchayat is chaired by the president of the village, known as a Pradhan/Sarpanch. The term of the elected representatives is five years. The Secretary of the panchayat is a non-elected representative, appointed by the state government, to oversee panchayat activities.
