  25. 25. IS MNREGA HARMFUL TO THE INTERESTS OF FARMERS ?  The most prominent accusation is that MNREGA has led to a shortage of workers available for farm work, and hence, increased agricultural wages.  It is alleged that this has resulted in an increased production costs, and has made farming difficult and unviable (Murthy and Mishra 2012). BUT  MNREGA participation is higher in villages where there are fewer landless households.  A major part of asset creation under MNREGA has been for the benefit of small and marginal farm holdings, particularly Scheduled Castes/ Scheduled Tribes (SC/ ST) 25 HARVEERSIRforGSSCORE
  26. 26. STANDING COMMITTEEON RURAL DEVELOPMENT  Ensuring livelihood for people in rural areas.  Large scale participation of women, Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes (SCs/STs) and other traditionally marginalised sections of society. SCs/STs account for 51% of the total person-days generated and women account for 47% of the total person-days generated.  Increasing the wage rate in rural areas and strengthening the rural economy through the creation of infrastructure assets.  Facilitating sustainable development, and  Strengthening PRIs by involving them in the planning and monitoring of the scheme. 26 HARVEERSIRforGSSCORE Source: PRS INDIA
  27. 27. ISSUES IN IMPLEMENTATION OF SCHEME: STANDING COMMITTEE  Fabrication of job cards: While as many as 12.5 crore households have been issued job cards out of an estimated 13.8 crore rural households ( as per the 2001 census), there are several issues related to existence of fake job cards, inclusion of fictitious names, missing entries and delays in making entries in job cards.  Delay in payment of wages: Most states have failed to disburse wages within 15 days as mandated by MGNREGA. In addition, workers are not compensated for a delay in payment of wages.  Non payment of unemployment allowances: Most states do not pay an unemployment allowance when work is not given on demand. The non-issuance of dated receipts of demanded work prevents workers from claiming an unemployment allowance.  Large number of incomplete works: There has been a delay in the completion of works under MGNREGA and inspection of projects has been irregular. Implementing agencies were able to complete only 98 lakh works out of 296 lakh works. As Table 2 shows, a large percentage of works remain incomplete under MGNREGA and the work completion rate appears to be decreasing in recent years. 27 HARVEERSIRforGSSCORE
  28. 28. CONCLUDING REMARKS  Indian agriculture is about seasonality: Lean/Slack season. MNAREGA works as the supplementary income tool.  Social Equity.  Creation of Productive Assets.  Bargaining Powers to Rural Workers.  Rise of Real rural wages in India: has the impact of rural distress. 28 HARVEERSIRforGSSCORE
