Citizens’
 
Monitoring
 
Report
 
on
 
MGNREGA
 
(Jamankira
 
Block
 
of 
 
Sambalpur
 
district,
 
Odisha
 
)
 
Every
 
day,
 
Mass
 
media
 
covers
 
news
 
about
 
large
scale
 
corruption,
 
irregularities,
 
false
 
entry
 
in
 
muster
 
rolls
 
and
 
delayed
 
payments
 
to
 
the
 
labourers
 
in
 
NREGA
 
work
 
in
 
the
 
state.
 
As
 
if 
 
the
 
corruption
 
has
 
no
 
end
 
in
 
implementation
 
of 
 
NREGA
 
in
 
Odisha.
 
But
 
it
 
is
 
seen
 
that
 
the
 
State
 
Govt.
 
always
 
remain
 
in
 
denial
 
mode.
 
However,
 
the
 
Govt.
 
has
 
taken
 
various
 
steps
 
like
 
introducing
 
toll
 
free
 
number,
 
framing
 
Grievance
 
redressal
 
rules,
 
on
line
 
filling
 
of 
 
complaints
 
etc.
 
to
 
check
 
corruption
 
and
 
ensure
 
effective
 
implementation
 
of 
 
National
 
Rural
 
Employment
 
Guarantee
 
Act.
 
On
 
the
 
other
 
hand,
 
it
 
is
 
alleged
 
that
 
the
 
system
 
developed
 
by
 
Govt.
 
has
 
not
 
helped
 
the
 
poor
 
labourers
 
to
 
get
 
 justice.
 
Being
 
frustrated
 
over
 
the
 
manner
 
of 
 
the
 
implementation
 
of 
 
NREGA
 
work,
 
long
 
delay
 
in
 
payments,
 
contractorraj,
 
denial
 
of 
 
wages,
 
the
 
poor
 
labourers
 
do
 
not
 
have
 
choice
 
but
 
to
 
leave
 
the
 
work
 
forever.
 
The
 
common
 
people
 
do
 
not
 
have
 
interest
 
to
 
do
 
the
 
work
 
under
 
NREGA.
 
It
 
is
 
slowly
 
taking
 
burial
 
death
 
in
 
the
 
state.
 
In
 
fact,
 
National
 
Rural
 
Employment
 
Guarantee
 
Act,
 
2005,
 
renamed
 
as
 
MGNREGA
 
mandates
 
guaranteeing
 
100
 
days
 
of 
 
employment
 
in
 
a
 
financial
 
year
 
to
 
any
 
rural
 
household
 
whose
 
adult
 
members
 
are
 
willing
 
to
 
do
 
unskilled
 
manual
 
work.
 
The
 
basic
 
objective
 
of 
 
the
 
Act
 
is
 
to
 
enhance
 
livelihood
 
security
 
in
 
rural
 
areas
 
by
 
providing
 
at
 
least
 
100
 
days
 
of 
 
guaranteed
 
wage
 
employment.
 
This
 
work
 
guarantee
 
also
 
serves
 
other
 
objectives:
 
generating
 
productive
 
assets,
 
protecting
 
the
 
environment,
 
empowering
 
rural
 
women,
 
reducing
 
rural
urban
 
migration
 
and
 
fostering
 
social
 
equity,
 
among
 
others.
 
To
 
achieve
 
the
 
objectives
 
of 
 
the
 
Act,
 
the
 
State
 
Govt.
 
has
 
been
 
implementing
 
a
 
lot
 
of 
 
programmes
 
like
 
Mo
 
Pokhari,
 
Farm
 
Pond,
 
construction
 
of 
 
check
 
dam,
 
land
leveling
 
etc.
 
for
 
providing
 
employment
 
to
 
the
 
people
 
and
 
developing
 
rural
 
infrastructure.
 
To
 
understand
 
real
 
situation
 
at
 
grass
root
 
level
 
in
 
respect
 
of 
 
implementation
 
of 
 
work
 
under
 
NREGA,
 
extent
 
of 
 
involvement
 
of 
 
the
 
people
 
and
 
response
 
of 
 
the
 
officials
 
involved
 
in
 
the
