A town panchayat or panchayat is a small town of approximately 20,000 to 25,000 inhabitants. It is formed under the panchayati raj administrative system.[1] In census data, the abbreviation T.P. is used to indicate a "town panchayat".[2] Tamil Nadu was the first state to introduce the panchayat town as an intermediate step between rural villages and urban local bodies (ULB).[3]

Management

Each Indian state has its own management directorate for panchayat towns.
