The form of Government (Panchayati Raj System)

"Mahatma Gandhi advocated Panchayati Raj as the foundation of India's political system, as a decentralized form of government in which each village would be responsible for its own affairs".

However, Nagaland has no Panchayati Raj system as it had exempted under Article 243M(2) of the Indian Constitution. So, inplace of this system, Nagaland has autonomous district & council created under sixth schedule of the constitution.

Therefore, Pathso village is governed by a system of self government (Village Council) within autonomous district council. – Today, the Incumbent 'HGB’-Head of the village council is Mr. 'Pengchang'.
