Mahathma Gandhi National Rural Employment Gurantee Scheme - A Right to Act

Prathibha R. S.

Abstract: The Mahatma Gandhi Rural Employment Guarantee Act (MGNREGA) represent a paradigm shift from other wage employment programme operating in India. It is a shift from programme to act; compared to the earlier programmes. It ensures the livelihood security of the poor households in rural areas by providing at least 100 days of guaranteed wage employment; to the adult members who are willing to do unskilled manual labour in every financial year. It is perhaps the largest and the most ambitious social security and public work programmes in the world. Though the achievements of MGNREGA have been impressive; there has been an issue with regard to its implementation. That needs to be recognized and addressed meaningfully. This paper tries to create full awareness about the scheme.
