Impact of Mgnrega on Rural Livelihood in India

Keshari Nandan Mishra


The National Rural Employment Guarantee Act, 2005 (NREGA) guarantees 100 days of wage employment in a financial year to any rural household whose adult  members are willing to participate in unskilled manual work. The Act is an important step towards realization of the right to work and aims at arresting out-migration of  rural households in search of employment simultaneously enhancing  people’s  livelihood on a sustained basis, by developing the economic and social infrastructure  in rural areas. The present study on evaluation of the MGNREGA Scheme is intended to assess the impact of this scheme on the overall quality of life of people by gauging different parameters associated with the improvement of overall quality of life of people such as   impact on income – earning levels of each household, expenditure on food and non-food items, household and cultivable assets creation by the beneficiaries.
