ABSTRACT:
MGNREGS is implemented to address the problem of poverty and unemployment in the country. Though a number of poverty alleviation and employment generation programmes have been introduced in the country, it failed miserably to address and find a sustained solution to the problem. Taking a departure from the earlier scheme, MGNREGS is implemented as demand based and legally binding to the implementing authority. Various studies are conducted to examine how far the programme has succeeded in obtaining the desired outcome. The present study focus on the impact of the programme on the most vulnerable and backward communities in an under the developed region of the state of Kerala. The study conducted among 500 Scheduled caste households in the Wayanad district of Kerala. It is found in the field study that the programme has helped in increasing the employment opportunities but failed to make a positive increase in the income status of the household.
