A study was conducted in Hooghly district of West Bengal to find out and prioritize the constraints in role performance of Gram Panchayats in agriculture and dairy farming. The total number of respondents (Gram Panchayat members including the Pradhans) selected for the study was 80. An open ended schedule was devised to identify and Garrett ranking technique (1981) was used to prioritize the constraints.
