Even after seven decades of independence, India is still considered to be a land of villages as the majority of our population live in the villages. The employment opportunities in such villages are still poor and hence it results in mass migration of the citizens in rural India to metro cities in search of employment opportunities. The Government of India has tried to remedy this situation by trying to provide employment opportunities and launched an Act for the same in this regard.
This Act is NREGA, which stands for the National Rural Employment Guarantee Act. This scheme was originally proposed at the time of Prime Minister P V Narshimha Rao. The Act was finally approved and implemented in the year 2005. It was later renamed to be Mahatma Gandhi National Rural Employment Guarantee Act (MGNREGA). This Act was launched with a view to especially for the rural population of our country.
The main objectives of the Act include providing employment opportunities provisions to the people in the rural parts of the country. Find all about NREGA on this page.
NREGA or MNREGA is one of the biggest and most successful and helpful schemes launched by the Government of India. This scheme provides for creating employment opportunities in the rural sector and to utilize the labour force for essential infrastructure projects.
The details of the objectives of NREGA Act of the Government of India are mentioned below.
NREGA or the MGNREGA Act of the Government of India is applicable pan-India for the benefit of the citizens in the remotest parts of the country. However, there are certain preset conditions set by the government for being eligible to avail the benefits under the scheme. These eligibility conditions ensure that all the beneficiaries of the rural sector of the country get equal opportunity of employment and the scheme can achieve its true objectives. The details of the eligibility under the Act are mentioned below.
The above eligibility criteria ensures that the scheme can be able to reach maximum number of beneficiaries for the rural parts of the country at the same time work toward making such areas better.
NREGA is one of the most successful employment Acts launched by the Government over the past decades. Following are the features of the Act that make it very popular among the masses of the country.
The Act focuses on mainly creating and developing good infrastructure in the rural areas of the country. Following are the core focus areas under the Act.
NREGA Job Card is a unique card that is issued to every beneficiary registered under the Act. This card is issued by the Gram Panchayat post effective registration under the MGNREGA. This card can be used to identify the beneficiary under the scheme and can act as the proof of enrollment under the scheme. This card has all the relevant details of the beneficiary like name, address, photograph, mobile number, etc. NREGA Job Card can also be used as a KYC document for various purposes like opening a new bank account, post office savings account, or in case of any other relevant Government Schemes like Pradhan Mantri Jan Awas Yojana, Pradhan Mantri Jan Dhan Yojana, etc.
The application process for The NREGA Job Card is an offline process. This is due to lack of effective connectivity in the remotest parts of the country as well as lack of knowledge of the online set up on part of the beneficiaries. The Government has therefore provided that the forms for NREGA Job Card can be availed from the Local Gram Panchayat Office. Alternatively, applicants can also download the application form from the official website of this scheme under the following link
The form is available for download at this link free of cost. Following are the details that will have to be provided by the applicant for such NREGA Job Cards.
