MGNREGA Telangana

The Mahatma Gandhi National Rural Employment Guarantee Act – 2005 (MGNREGA) was initiated to enhance 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 volunteered to do unskilled manual work. Thus, MGNREGA is a powerful instrument for ensuring inclusive growth in rural India through its impact on social protection, livelihood security and democratic empowerment. In this article we will look at Details of Telangana Mahatma Gandhi Rural Employment Guarantee Scheme.

Goals of MGNREGA

  • Social protection for the most vulnerable people living in rural India by providing employment opportunities.
  • Livelihood security for the poor through creation of durable assets, improved water security, soil conservation and higher land productivity.
  • Drought-proofing and flood management in rural India
  • Empowerment of the socially disadvantaged, especially women, Scheduled Castes (SCs) and Schedules Tribes (STs), through the processes of a rights-based legislation.
  • Strengthening decentralised, participatory planning through convergence of various anti-poverty and livelihoods initiatives.
  • Deepening democracy at the grass-roots by strengthening Panchayat Raj Institutions.
  • Effecting greater transparency and accountability in governance.
