Dheeraj R P

Mahatma Gandhi National Rural Employment Guarantee Scheme (MNREGS) was introduced in 2006 by the Government of India, with an objective of improving the livelihood security of the rural poor by providing guaranteed employment for 100 days. This paper analyses whether this scheme has been able to achieve the objective and looks into the question whether this scheme has caused development of the rural poor. The author has concluded the paper by suggesting appropriate changes which must be incorporated to achieve the object of the scheme effectively.
