  23. 23. •OUTCOME  (Achievements of NREGA)
  24. 24. 1. Maximizing Work Opportunities: Livelihood Security Under NREGA , in FY 2012-13, 50 million households were provided employment and 230.5 crore person days were generated. In FY 2013-14, 48 million households were provided work and 220.7 crore person days were generated.
  25. 25. 2.Inclusive Growth: NREGA has provided employment particularly for marginalized groups. The participation percentages were 55% (SC/ST) in 2008-09 and 53% (SC/ST) upto July, 2009. Women workforce participation has also surpassed the statutory minimum requirement of 33 per cent. In FY 08-09, women participation was 48%, which increased to 52% in 2009-10 (upto July, 09). Women participation during the scheme execution in Kerala has been very high. (Kudumbashree movement).Out of total employment generated in the State, the women beneficiaries were included 65.8 percent in 2006-07 increased to 85.01 percent in 2008-09, 88.19 percent in 2009-10 and 90.36 percent 2010-11. Empowerment of rural women has emerged as an unintended consequence of NREGS. Women have benefited more as workers than as a community. Women as individuals have gained because of their ability to earn independently, made possible due to the paid employment opportunity under NREGS.

  27. 27. 3.Augmenting household income, savings and investment: Post-NREGA, there has been a revision of minimum wages across the country ; in the last three years, average daily wage rate has increased from Rs. 114 in 2011-12 to Rs 133 in 2014-15.
  28. 28. 236 155
  29. 29. 4.Financial Inclusion: • Over 7.33 crore NREGA bank and post office accounts have been opened so far. These accounts have helped bring the rural poor under the organized banking sector. • This will not only infuse integrity in wage payment, but also bring the most vulnerable people in rural India into formal banking and credit system. 5.Regenerating Natural Resources: • Under NREGA water and soil conservation, plantation and afforestation has been given priority. • Works relating to drought proofing and flood protection are aimed to provide resistance to climate shocks and natural disasters.

  33. 33. Funding * The Central Government bears the costs on the following items: • The entire cost of wages of unskilled manual workers. • 75% of the cost of material, wages of skilled and semi-skilled workers. • Administrative expenses as may be determined by the Central Government, which will include, inter alia, the salary and the allowances of the Programme Officer and his supporting staff and work site facilities. • Expenses of the Central Employment Guarantee Council. The State Government bears the costs on the following items: • 25% of the cost of material, wages of skilled and semi-skilled workers. Unemployment allowance payable in case the State Government cannot provide wage employment on time. • Administrative expenses of the State Employment Guarantee Council. State Employment Guarantee Fund (SEGF) The Ministry has stressed on the formation of State Employment Guarantee Funds (SEGF). Eighteen States have constituted SEGF and have dedicated account for Mahatma Gandhi NREGA. In remaining States where SEGF has not been constituted, each District has a dedicated account for Mahatma Gandhi NREGA funds. Proposals are submitted based on clearly delineated guidelines so that funds may be distributed efficiently at each level, and adequate funds may be available to respond to demand. Under Mahatma Gandhi NREGA, fund releases are based on an appraisal of both financial and physical indicators of outcomes.

  36. 36. Amendments in NREGA  (7th Jan,2010) NREGA was renamed to MGNREGA  (14th May,2010) Old Logo New Logo
  37. 37. Advantage from MGNREGA Environmental Benefits and Vulnerability Reduction Every 5th rural Indian household benefits from MGNREGA Agricultural Sustainability Women empowerment
  38. 38. NREGS: Success Story of Hardoi(UP)  Name of Work – Renovation of Kakhraiya Pond ,Year – 2006-07  Cost of the work – Rs.1.126 lakh  Man days Created- 1300  Benefit of the Project – It is useful for recharging the ground water, for drinking water for animals, for irrigation purpose as well as it has provided the employment to the local labourers.
  39. 39. LIMITATIONS   Registration problems in terms of caste discrimination.  Uniform distribution of job cards is a time consuming process and leads to dissatisfaction.  Only 19% of the 8.5 lakh differently able people registered for the scheme have got work under NREGA.  Illegal charges levied on people for application forms.  Non-issuance of receipts to applicants.  Unavailability of necessary facilities at the work places.  Improper maintenance of attendance of the workers.  Payments of wages delayed.  Measurement of work done by the workers a major problem.  Inadequate number of officials for the scheme.  Delay in appointments of officials in the villages.  Another issue is that of fake muster rolls & bills being generated
  40. 40. In Bundelkhand, M.P, the scheme is plagued by corruption and delayed payment of wages. In the last three years, the State government has spent over 1.1 lakh crores on the scheme. However, results remain unsatisfactory. The Union government recently increased the number of job days from 100 to 200, but people here are not celebrating and would prefer migrating to Delhi. “We have to pay bribes, face intimidation and still wages are never paid on time. Private employers pay less, but at least we get paid at the end of the day”, says Bootha Ahirwar, a farmer from Majhora village. Empty document: Gurba Ahirwar of Akona village in Madhya Pradesh showing his NREGA job card, with no entries made in it. .
  41. 41. Way Ahead Monitor the programme effectively Village level resource planning and development Other development programs like Bharat Nirman should sync with NREGA From quantitative employment generation to sustainable development through asset building Representatives Proper election and training More power to Panchayat Raj
