Policy and Regulatory Environment (RHM)

The Maharashtra Panchayat Act provides for running of RH by the Panchayat. The Act also provides for the formation of sub-committees for various activities of the Panchayat. The RH Management Committee can therefore be formed under the provisions of the provisions of the Act. Wherever such sub-committees exist, the representatives of the farmers, consumers & traders will be co-opted as members of the RH Management Committee. Where such sub- committees do not exist and RH are being managed by the whole Panchayat, the RH Management Committee having representatives of the farmers, consumers & traders would be formed.

The provisions of APMC Act are not applicable to village RH and therefore none of the provisions under the APMC Act will come in the way of modernization of RH.
Need for reforms in the functioning of RHs: The following reforms would be mandatory for the RHs to access project funding.
