NREGS Impact

I had blogged about the rural employment guarantee scheme (NREGS) earlier. An interesting story in The Economic Times & The Times of India today. The report indicates that the Bihar NREGS scheme has worked so well that migrant labours from Bihar have decided to stay back in their villages in Bihar! This has led to shortage of agricultural labourers in Punjab this cropping season. Is this good for migrant labourers from Bihar? Yes & No. Is this good for Punjab? No. Is this good for NREGS? resounding yes. You can read the story here
