The current research was conducted to determine various economic and administrative factors hindering women's participation in Panchayat activities. The score card was prepared and displayed in tables. By adopting random sampling strategies for each sample, research blocks are selected. Data were collected about the economic and administrative challenges women face while performing Panchayat activities. All official leaders are represented by sarpanches, punches, for research purposes. Delays in getting help from provincial and regional governments and greater control of officials are the most important variables. Changes are needed for the problems that women face at different times.
