Awareness about Mahatma Gandhi National Rural Employment Guarantee Act: Some evidence from the northern parts of West Bengal, India
This study takes up the issues related to the awareness about an ambitious welfare programme targeting the rural population of India, the Mahatma Gandhi National Rural Employment Guarantee Act (MGNREGA). The study is based on a primary survey and finds a general lack of awareness about the basic guidelines and the legal entitlements among the intended beneficiaries. This is attributed as one of the reasons for the underlying corruption and the programme not being so successful in the surveyed areas as compared to some other states of India. The paper also provides some suggestions that may result in better implementation of the evaluated programme in the study areas.
