Asset Creation and Local Economy under NREGs: Scope and Challenges
The paper examines the potential impact of wages and assets created under NREGS on local economies and discusses policy implications for ensuring realization of the potential. The specific objectives of the paper are to (a) identify potential linkages of the assets and scope for poverty reduction; (b) discuss imperatives for convergence with developmental programmes especially watershed development; and (c) draw policy implications. The analysis is exploratory in nature and it draws upon the secondary data as well as the existing literature on impact of various employment generation schemes as well as developmental programmes.
