Mgnrega: Success or Failure! (Paperback)
The book "MGNREGA: Success or Failure " looks at the implementation of the MGNREGA in Rajasthan. The Indian Government passed the MGNREGA in September, 2005 and launched the Mahatma Gandhi National Rural Employment Guarantee Programme on February 2, 2006. The Act guarantees right to work by providing 100 days of guaranteed wage employment in a financial year to every rural household whose adult members are willing to do unskilled manual work. The enactment of the Act was a major achievement for Indian democracy. However, the real essence of the Act lies in its successful implementation of the Act. The book is based on a research study carried out in Rajasthan to look at the implementation of the Act. The book intends to answer some of the questions on the pro-poor policy in rural areas. How effective is the Act in addressing the problem of poverty among rural households? Are the poor able to get their rights? What are the limitations in the Act and its implementation?
