Through this mechanism, Gandhi aimed at resisting any kind of unjust, impure or untruthful acts. This concept also aims at furtherance of love and self-purification.
The most significant change was the decentralization of implementation by involving local people through PRIs and hence a decreasing role of bureaucracy. Narasimha Rao to provide employment to agricultural hands during the lean agricultural season. Rao had started discussions on this act in Init was merged with SGRY.
The wage employment must be provided within 15 days of the date of application. The Act sets a minimum limit to the wage-material ratio as The provision of accredited engineers, worksite facilities and a weekly report on worksites is also mandated by the Act.
The states are required to evolve a set of norms for the measurement of works and schedule of rates. Unemployment allowance must be paid if the work is not provided within the statutory limit of 15 days.
The law by providing a 'right to work' is consistent with Article 41 that directs the State to secure to all citizens the right to work.
Also the process of decentralization initiated by 73rd Amendment The effectiveness of gandhi the Constitution of India that granted a constitutional status to the Panchayats  is further reinforced by the Mahatma Gandhi NREGA that endowed these rural self-government institutions with authority to implement the law.
An early overall assessment in the north India states suggested that NREGA was "making a difference to the lives of the rural poor, slowly but surely. Several studies have found that agricultural wages have increased significantly, especially for women since the inception of the scheme. Ongoing research efforts try to evaluate the overall welfare effects of the scheme; a particular focus has been to understand whether the scheme has reduced migration into urban centers for casual work.
One third of all employment is reserved for women, there is a provision for equal wages to men and women, provision for child care facilities at the worksite - these are three important provisions for women in the Act.
A few focusing on the potential for asset creation under NREGA suggest that a the potential is substantial and b in some places it is being realized and c lack of staff, especially technical staff rather than lack of material are to blame for poor realization of this potential.
One studies the effect in Andhra Pradesh - the authors find that "while politics may influence programme expenditure in some places and to a small extent, this is not universally true and does not undermine the effective targeting and good work of the scheme at large. The comprehensive assessment of the performance of the law by the constitutional auditor revealed serious lapses arising mainly due to lack of public awareness, mismanagement and institutional incapacity.
The CAG also suggested some corrective measures. Further, the CAG audit reports discrepancies in the maintenance of prescribed basic records in up to half of the gram panchayats GPs which inhibits the critical evaluation of the NREGA outcomes.
To improve management of outcomes, it recommended proper maintenance of records at the gram panchayat GP level. Further the Central Council is recommended to establish a central evaluation and monitoring system for "a national level, comprehensive and independent evaluation of the scheme".
The CAG also recommends a timely payment of unemployment allowance to the rural poor and a wage material ratio of Moreover, for effective financial management, the CAG recommends proper maintenance of accounts, in a uniform format, on a monthly basis and also enforcing the statutory guidelines to ensure transparency in the disposal of funds.
For capacity building, the CAG recommends an increase in staff hiring to fill the large number of vacancies. It is perhaps the largest and most ambitious social security and public works programme in the world. It is also a message that comes loud and clear from the resounding popularity of MGNREGA—today, about one-fourth of all rural households participate in the programme every year.
Further the Minister says: On an average, 5 crore 50 million households have been provided employment every year since Scheduled Castes SCs and Scheduled Tribes STs have accounted for 51 per cent of the total person-days generated and women for 47 per cent, well above the mandatory 33 per cent as required by the Act.
Chandoke The process of a social audit A continuous process of social audit on NREGA works involves public vigilance and verification at the stipulated 11 stages of implementation: For some stages, the programme officer and the junior engineer is also responsible along with Sarpanch.
Then the management personnel of the social audit verify these official records by conducting field visits.
Finally, the 'Jansunwai' or public hearing is organised at two levels: The direct public debate involving the beneficiaries, political representatives, civil servants and, above all, the government officers responsible for implementing the NREGA works highlights corruption like the practice of rigging muster rolls attendance registers and also generates public awareness about the scheme.
The need for effective management of tasks, timely payment of wages and provision of support facilities at work sites is also emphasised. The study found that the public awareness about the NREGA increased from about 30 per cent before the social audit to about 99 per cent after the social audit.
Further, the efficacy of NREGA implementation increased from an average of about 60 per cent to about 97 per cent. For example, Rejaul Karim Laskaran ideologue of the Congress party - the largest constituent of the UPA Government which introduced the scheme, claims that the scheme has multifarious benefits including "reduction in poverty, reduction in migration, women empowerment, improvement of productivity of agricultural land and regeneration of water resources".
Following demands were proposed: Government of India should increase the Central allocation for the scheme so that number of workdays can be increased to and per day wage can be increased to Rs. Job card to be issued for everyone who demands job, failing which, after 15 days employment benefits should be given.
Minimum days of work should be ensured to all card holders 4. Minimum wage act should be strictly implemented. Delay in wage payment should be resolved.Search the world's most comprehensive index of full-text books.
