NATIONAL RURAL EMPLOYMENT GUARANTEE ACT
National rural employment guarantee act (NREGA) some time after its establishment was named National rural employment guarantee act (NREGA).
The main objective of MNREGA was "enhancing livelihood security in rural areas by providing at least 100 days of guaranteed wage employment in a financial year, to every household whose adult members volunteer to do unskilled manual work".
Another aim of is to create “durable assets” such as developing roads, canals, ponds, wells etc.
The scheme was put into act to make use of the useless (unemployed) and dependent citizens of India by providing them employment and wages accordingly to every person that was liable. The people getting employment through MNREGA were given legal entitlement too.
“Right to work” is the right of every individual living in a country like India and in the areas prone to drought and flood, people suffer from many difficulties regarding their family, children, children’s education, earn money, food, shelter and with nothing left over with them after certain natural calamities and situations or due to backward regions being away from employment, it becomes their necessity to earn money and to support and nurture their family. So, the Prime Minister of India, Manmohan Singh launched this scheme on 2 February,2006 to provide labour and security in rural areas. This law was forced by the government as "the largest and most ambitious social security and public works programme in the world". The World Bank termed it a "stellar example of rural development".
It also promoted to self-consciousness among peoples towards protecting environment, women, literacy, employment, reduced rural-urban migration, equality etc.
In this act, all the finance and work is taken into account to ensure accountability and transparency as it provide some rules and regulations for its management which makes it more powerful and trustworthy.
But, corruption still happens as peoples does not work and still get money by online registering them on NREGA website. Some other people who are not poor also misuse this scheme.
