In what ways are the work of the Panchayat that you read about in the previous chapter and the work of the Patwari related to each other?

The Patwari is to maintain land records of his taluka or tehsil and settle minor disputes, while the disputes that are not being solved by the Patwari are move to the Panchayat level. The Panchayat levy many taxes on people under its jurisdiction, while the Patwari is responsible for organizing the collection of land revenue from the farmers. Both, the Panchayat and the Patwari play the role of a mediator to solve the problem of its people.
