    Where is the part payment of money for people working under MGNREGA 2005?

    This is one of the worst implementation of welfare programs here in the hilly region of Uttarakhand. Its seems like the people have been fooled in the name of this program.

    There is clear evidence from the local sources that unemployed men and women have worked under this scheme but they have been not paid more than 10 -15% of the labor they have put in.
    They have been awaiting payment since last 18-20 months.

    Actually they don't have much idea about the same. They are not raising their voice for the same as they don't want want to spoil their relation with Village headman/ woman. Even Block Pramukh gives very silly answer on the same.

    People don't know where their hard earn money is stuck and why it is being not cleared till date.
    Either this program is just a propaganda or the officials and other concerned are not serious about paying the dues. Govt is really not serious to check the project undertaken under this scheme and whether the needy ones have been paid for the same.

    Govt is just showing the pomp and show in the name of MGNREGA (Mahatma Gandhi National Rural Employment Guarantee Act).

    If this is to happen why it has been named as Guarantee Act 2005. Is the guarantee only for the job and not for the payments?

    The main aim of Mahatma Gandhi Rural Employment guarantee scheme is to provide at least 180 days of labor work to the locals so that they can lead a decent living. All the contractors are advised to engage only local labors when ever big work under central sponsor schemes are going on. But unfortunately big contracts are controlled by MP and MLA's and they would be engaging there hench men to over see the works and they in turn fool the locals with less pay and even deceive them without pay. This is really a very good program which guarantees income to the male and female who are illiterates and yet can earn some amount for their life. But the middle man of politicians are spoiling the program. PM is monitoring this prestigious program and the author can make complain to PMO and see that action is taken.
