The West Bengal Panchayat elections are likely to be held in March 2023, sources said, adding that the State Election Commission (SEC) and Panchayat Department are preparing for it. The process of delimitation, reservation and meeting with the district magistrate has been conducted and the SEC will announce the dates after consultation with the state government, said sources. In November, ‘Duare Sarkar’ (Government at Your Doorstep) camps will be held in different areas, to help people avail government schemes in every village and block. Bengal BJP while gearing up for polls demands central security to prevent 2018-like violence. The TMC government has already instructed all senior leaders to start an extensive district tour.
