Abstract:
Employment in the rabi season too is very low since only a few farmers undertake cultivation in this season. So there is a long spell of agricultural inactivity after the kharif season which generally gets over in October. MGNREGA is regarded as the largest public employment programme in the world, assures 100 days of work per year to all rural households, whose adults are willing to do unskilled manual labor at the statutory minimum wage notified for the program. For this study, Panamarathupatty block in Salem district has been selected and the Probability sampling was used for the selection of villages. The ex post facto research design was used for the study, in this regard, researcher has no scope in manipulation of independent variables. The events which has already occurred has been studied. Each scatter plot in the matrix visualizes the relationship between a pair of works in the MGNREGA, allowing many relationships to be explored in one chart. The A-type card holders participate in medium to high level of participation in the MGNREGA works. This medium to high level of participation is due to that, beneficiaries participated more than 50 days of work. The participation of beneficiaries in the grama sabha meetings shows that they are actively involved in discussing the problems, designing new projects and developing the implementation strategies for the project. This active participation ensures the beneficiaries to participate in the part of decision making process for selection of projects in grama sabha. Though participation levels are increased and employment opportunities within the village have brought about some improved visible changes in the beneficiaries livelihood.
