Abstract

Abstract Mahatma Gandhi National Rural Employment Guarantee Scheme (MGNREGS) is the most significant act in the history Indian polity. In many ways like grass-root level participation of every citizen and beneficiary through democratic process, multi-layered social audit, transparency mechanism by involvement of civil society, comprehensive planning at village level towards sustainable and inclusive growth etc. With the implementation of National Rural Employment Guarantee Act (NREGA) which is now MGNREGS, India in 2006 embarked on an ambitious attempt to fight rural poverty by creating a justifiable right to work for adults in all households in rural India. It is vital to emphasize that the future of MGNREGS, which is a legal entitlement for the underprivileged people living in rural areas, which are tied with the working of the Panchayati Raj Institutions in India. The scheme ensures the 100 days of employment to all the households, with equitability of wages to all the workers across genders. The scheme provides for depositing the money directly to the bank accounts of beneficiaries, to minimize the instances of corruption. It further provides for social audit, checking of muster-rolls and stipulated time frame, for the payment of wages. The scheme so far has been quite effective in India, including the state of Himachal Pradesh.
