Execution and Evaluation of Mahatma Gandhi National Rural Employment Guarantee Act (MGNREGA), 2005 with special reference to Assam


  • Mr. Anupom Borgohain


In India, Mahatma Gandhi National Rural Employment Guarantee Act (MGNREGA) is the main demonstration which ensures wage work on a remarkable scale. Its point is to build the job security of family units in provincial regions of the nation by giving them at least 100 days of ensured wage work in a budgetary year. It is hailed as a milestone activity to mitigate neediness and creates profitable compensation business. Along with this act, the government of India has taken up several policies after the independence in the matter of rural development with a view to ensure social justice and to solve the problem of unemployment, under-employment, poverty which is the major factors hunting the socio-economic development. But most of the government programmes had neither reduced the poverty levels in a sustainable manner nor had they extended the labour absorption size of the main stream economy in any significant scale. In this regard MGNREGA has a revolutionary step to play in eradicating poverty especially in rural areas. This present study attempts to depict the performance of Mahatma Gandhi National Rural Employment Guarantee Programme, 2005 particularly in Assam.
