Jobs provided under MGNREGS
The Minister of State for for Rural Development Shri Pradeep Jain “Aditya” today informed the Rajya Sabha that State-wise number of households provided employment under Mahatma Gandhi NREGA up to 30.6.2010 during the current year is given in the Annexure.

Mahatma Gandhi NREGA is demand based. A job seeker has to apply for work for getting employment under the Act. Feedback from States indicates that the main areas of concern are deployment of qualified and dedicated staff at Block and Gram Panchayat level especially technical staff for full MIS operationalisation; need to strengthen banks and post offices outreach in rural areas; need for awareness generation; training of PRIs; better planning; more transparent monitoring and social audits. States have been advised to address these areas.
