what is these tribal areas The PESA law
in 1992, the 73rd amendment of the Constitution was given to the Gram Panchayats. This law came into force from 1993. But at that time this law did not include tribal dominated areas included in the fifth schedule. In the fifth schedule, Chhattisgarh, Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan, Gujarat, Jharkhand, Odisha, Pt. Bengal, Telangana, Andhra Pradesh and Maharashtra are included. Later, Parliament enacted the expansion of panchayats in Scheduled Areas Act-PESA 1996. It was notified on 24 December. The government in Chhattisgarh could not make its rules in the last 22 years. Because of this, this law, which made panchayats autonomous in tribal areas, was lying idle. The Congress promised it in the 2018 election manifesto. When the government was formed, the exercise started on it. Now the government has made its rules and published it in the Gazette.Read more: Dhawan's reaction came for the first time after cutting the leaf from the Asia Cup, the anger of the heart
