The Village (Dweep) Panchayats in the islands are implementing various developmental schemes of two categories. The first category is the schemes evolved by themselves. The Second category is those schemes which have been transferred to these Panchayats by the Developmental Departments of Lakshadweep Administration. The Schemes have been transferred by the administration with necessary staff and assets. Funds are also made available from time to time to these Panchayats for the implementation of these Schemes.
