Participatory job demand and efficiency of performance of NREGS in rural asset creation: An analysis in the context of West Bengal, India


  • Soumyendra Kishore Datta
  • Krishna Singh


The participation and performance impact of National Rural Employment Guarantee Scheme on the villagers in India is likely to be felt by the diversity of rural asset creation works, timeliness of payments, rate of payment, number of working days etc. In this context a model has been developed for analytically assessing the positive impact of mass participation on rural asset creation. Participatory response of job card holders is also analysed by employing suitable regression. Further focus is made on overall performance efficiency of the scheme in alleviating the hardship and job problem of rural households along with policy recommendations.
