Rangaswamy Shanmugam, of Odanthurai Panchayat, is a visionary President.  He’s also no longer its President, having served the maximum term in office between 2001 and 2009, following his father’s five-year holding of the same position.  Shanmugam’s wife Mrs.Lingammal is now officially president of Odanthurai Panchayat, though her husband’s leadership has laid an indelible stamp upon its governance.

 

“When Shanmugam suggests something, we know it’s for our benefit,” says M. Radharkrishnan, a Panchayat member and saw mill worker.  We’re told more than three thousand plans have been executed in the Panchayat under the family’s leadership, and not a single one has been opposed. Shanmugam’s approach combines entrepreneurial spirit with sound financial management to meet the governance needs of the area. The Panchayat’s hallmark commitment to transparency has resulted in public accounts being painted on the outside walls of their office buildings.  From housing projects to Rs. 178 to obtain a death certificate for a deceased man, all public money expenditures are listed for residents to see. These expenditures include some very unconventional projects with what he calls non-conventional energy – including the Panchayat’s purchase of a 350kW windmill.

 

Odanthurai is an eleven-village Panchayat, 40km from Coimbatore, in Karamadai block of Tamil Nadu.  Eight thousand people live on its 1119 square kilometres, but the figure is rapidly increasing: in 1996 Odanthurai was home to only 1500.  The Panchayat has good roads, good schools and good housing, and even the tribal population are migrating to its housing projects. Yet these people don’t bring private wealth.
