Dr.N.Maria Navis Soris,  E.Sheeba
As public works programmers one of the main intended benefits of MGNREGA is the creation of additional employment. The scheme also has the potential to affect rural labor market when alternative job opportunities are viable. MGNREGA has radically transformed the manner in which poor rural households view their rights as citizens and has served as a critical source of livelihood for many of the poorest households at times when no work was available in private rural labor markets. MGNREGA has not been a complete success but it has significant potential to transform power relations in the rural country. It deals with gender wise classification, age of respondents, marital status, religion, occupation, education, nature of family, and family income in the study.
