Experience of the Maharashtra Employment Guarantee Scheme: are there lessons for NREGS?
AbstractThis paper notes that while the NREGS has potential to reduce the intensity of poverty for the large mass of rural poor, the number of days of work provided and the level of the wage rate remain critical determinants of whether or not this can provide an escape route out of poverty for those who are able to work.
