Abstract:

The present study was conducted in Kadapa district of Andhra Pradesh to find out the constraints faced by constraints faced by the MGNREGA. A total of 120 respondents were selected purposively for both beneficiaries and non-beneficiaries for the present investigation. The data was collected by using pre-tested schedule and analysed using appropriate statistical tools. The major findings of the study for the beneficiaries are 100 days employment is not fulfilled (1st rank) followed by Delay in job card approval (2nd rank), no extra wage payment for works outside 5km of radius (3rd rank), Late payment of wages (4th rank), No timely allotment of works (5th rank) & Gender bias (6th rank). In case of non-beneficiaries, the major constraints are People faced so many problems in pandemic situation(1st rank) followed by Difficulties to buy due to high cost of products in the time of Covid (2nd rank), Delay in job card approval (3rd rank), Season to un-season problems (4th rank). No provision of employment in own village (5th rank), Losses due to heavy rains (6th rank), Late payment of wages (7th rank), No unemployment allowances (8th rank), No timely allotment of work(9th rank) and No provision of proper worksite facilities (10th rank). It was suggested to conduct similar study in larger area with large sample size so that the conclusion can be generalized to comparatively large area followed by a comparative study between beneficiaries and non-beneficiaries, districts, regions is necessary as these areas differ widely in their employment needs followed by Impact studies of this scheme must be conducted. As Gram Panchayats are the pivot of this scheme, studies on the role of Gram Panchayats in implementing MGNREGA must be carried out, Similar studies with same objectives can be replicated in the other areas for drawing valid conclusions, Studies on gap analysis of activities of MGNREGA are required, the training needs of officials at different levels of MGNREGA implementation can also be studied, followed by Future research in the field of MGNREGA could be in the areas of transparency of the Act and about the awareness among the people about its benefits for the poor and More rigorous research studied are required to understand the impact on income of small and marginal farmers as well as the productive potential of these works.
