National Mobile Monitoring System (NMMS) App for MGNREGS

Posted On: 21 MAR 2023 6:59PM by PIB Delhi

A field visit to the Alwar district of Rajasthan was made for pilot testing of National Mobile Monitoring System (NMMS) App and after checking its applicability, the NMMS App was launched.

To ensure more transparency in the implementation of Mahatma Gandhi National Rural Employment Guarantee Scheme (Mahatma Gandhi NREGS) in the States/UTs, a provision for capturing of attendance at worksite through National Mobile Monitoring System (NMMS) App with geo-tagged time stamped photographs of the worker in a day has been started on 21st May 2021, wherein muster rolls were issued for 20 or more workers. This increases citizen oversight of the programme besides potentially enabling faster processing of payments.

Government of India has decided that from 16.05.2022, the workers attendance will be captured only through NMMS App for all the worksites where muster rolls are issued for 20 or more beneficiaries based on the feedback and suggestions from States/UTs. One year time, thus, has been provided as transition period.

Now, the Ministry has decided that States/UTs shall ensure capturing of attendance for all the works (except Individual Beneficiary works) through NMMS App from 1st January 2023.

NMMS App is used to capture the attendance of Mahatma Gandhi NREGS workers. There is no requirement for having gender-based registration in the NMMS App.

This information was given by the Union Minister of State for Rural Development, Sadhvi Niranjan Jyoti in a written reply in Lok Sabha today.
