    Aims and Objectives:-

The “Mahatma Gandhi National Rural Employment Guarantee Act”, MGNREGA,is an Indian labour law and social security measure that aims to guarantee the ‘right to work’. It aims to enhance livelihood security in rural areas by providing at least 100 days of wage employment in a financial year to every household whose adult members volunteer to do unskilled manual work. Another aim of MGNREGA is to create durable assets (such as roads, canals, ponds, wells). Employment is to be provided within 5 km of an applicant’s residence, and minimum wages are to be paid. If work is not provided within 15 days of applying, applicants are entitled to an unemployment allowance. Thus, employment under MGNREGA is a legal entitlement.

  • Cement Concrete Road(Normal):
    Aims and Objectives:The Panchayati Raj Department, Government of Odisha have taken initiative in the past for construction of Cement Concrete Road in the village under various schemes in order to improve the quality of life and hygienic conditions in the villages. It has become a very popular scheme and one of the most sought after schemes in the rural areas. In the past, though cement concrete roads were taken up under different schemes, all the villages have not yet been covered. The State Government has decided to give thrust to the scheme for construction of intra village cement concrete roads in the villages with the objective of attaining saturation in the State with special focus on PVTG (Particularly Vulnerable Tribal Groups)/ST/SC habitations.
    Aims and Objectives:-To ‘strengthen’ Gram Sabhas in PESA areas and to enable its efficient functioning in areas under PESA, the Rajiv Gandhi Panchayat Sashaktikaran Abhiyan (RGPSA), a new scheme of the Ministry being implemented from March 2013 onwards, addresses the major issues concerning awareness about rights of the people in Schedule V Areas. It provides for deployment of one mobiliser in each Gram Sabha and one Coordinator at Block/District levels. Funds have been provided for orienting Gram Sabha on PESA related issues and States can involve NGOs, if required, in whole process. All these activities have been integrated in the overall programme of capacity building undertaken by the States in coordination with their State Institutes of Rural Development (SIRD).
