The economic policies of the country continued to undergo changes in the form of shifting the focus from economic growth to employment and poverty reduction, or vice versa, in accordance with the changing of the society over a period of time, the mounting pressure of unemployment, particularly unskilled unemployment compelled the government to undertake special employment progrmmes under different heads. It is perceived from the review of literature that most of the researchers have either examined the macro level aspects of MGNREGA or confined to the specific areas like implementation mechanism, with respect to the linkage of legal frame work, after Nine year of MGNREGA commencement, reveals that there is very few literature find on micro level studies on Marginalized section. Therefore, the current study examines the impact of the scheme on poverty reduction and employment generation as well as income generation of the marginalized sections of society like Scheduled Caste and Scheduled Tribes especially in new state of Telangana. The objective are analysed through simple average, percentage, Z-Test analysis (Test for Proportions), correlation, between factors identified and perceived level of MGNREGA development. The study was based on the primary data collected from the various parts of the two districts, namely, Mahaboobnagar and Khammam and supplemented with the secondary data. It can be concluded that there is greater need to increase number of job days to help to increase thus leading to development of SC and ST sections of people.
