India is adopting various steps to bring women into the system of governance. Providing reservation for women in local self-governing bodies was one such initiative. With this many women had come forward and took part in various roles in the functioning of local self-governing bodies. But most of them are not having sound educational background or experience in political administrations. So the situation is like, we have a pool of women candidates in administrative roles who need to be equipped with certain skill sets to perform their duties well. The objective of the study is to identify the level of various skills among elected women representatives and suggest training requirements. It was found that that the ability of elected women representatives to work in teams, learn new things and make decisions is below the benchmark level. Thus training programs need to be initiated by government in this regard to enable women representatives to outshine in their performance.
