The Chhattisgarh public libraries legislation: A critical analysis

Rushmanasab Gurikar, Dr. Brajesh Tiwari


This paper reviews the existing public library legislation of Chhattisgarh and compares it with the legislation of other state legislations in India. The paper finds some lacunas in the existing public library legislation of Chhattisgarh and has thus made certain suggestions for further modifications and improvements. Although Chhattisgarh has been carved out from Madhya Pradesh in 2000, yet efforts made for the implementation of library legislation of 2008, are highly appreciable. However, there is a need for further improvement in the legislation and its implementation as per the changing requirements and demands of the public.
