indication of the dismal performance of the scheme this financial year less than 3 per cent households were able to complete the promised 100 days of employment under the Mahatma Gandhi National Rural Employment Guarantee Act (MGNREGA) this year effectively meaning that 97 per cent of the beneficiaries have not been able to use the scheme to its maximum intended capacity Introduced in February 2006 MGNREGA promises 100 days of employment every year to each rural household The scheme has faced controversy since the NDA government came to power with several activists economists and opposition parties accusing the government of trying to dilute the scheme and squeeze its funds As per data with the Rural Development Ministry only 279 per cent of the total households who got work under the scheme this financial year actually worked for the full 100 days till December 31 As per the ministry’s MIS updated regularly the figure has improved only marginally since then to just a little over 3 per cent now Share This Article Related Article Last fiscal year 10 per cent households who worked under the scheme completed 100 days of work This figure has never been too encouraging at 10 per cent for FY 2012-13 and 8 per cent for 2011-12 Ministry officials say this year’s figures could improve by March end since data comes with a lag However they add it is unlikely to go up much The particularly poor performance of the scheme this year has been triggered by a funds crunch at the ground level and an unfavourable pattern of funds release Officials say there were massive delays in release of funds by the Centre to states this fiscal hampering the ability to plan work and provide employment on the ground The delay in release of funds also caused huge delays in payment of wages thus discouraging many from seeking work under the scheme The Indian Express had reported last week how over 70 per cent of the wages have been delayed this year and that each household on an average has been provided employment for just a little over one-third of the mandated 100 days so far For all the latest India News download Indian Express App More Related NewsGerrry Clarke looks back on an extraordinary fortnight at the Makoba Mission South Africa with a group from Belvedere and from Friends in Ireland Their mission: to build the walls of a wash-house for children suffering from AIDS Our mission was to raise the walls of a wash house for the children orphaned by AIDS at the Makoba Mission near Kokstad in South Africa It was a long journey by plane ‘combie’ (a small van) and ‘bakkie’ (a pick-up truck) that brought us to the remotest communities of the Drakensberg foothills Under the shadow of those snow-capped mountains and in an icy-wind our 19-strong group of Belvedere school-leavers laboured hard to complete the tasks Probably the best thing we brought was hope: hope that someone was starting to care for them But our medical clinics and construction work will be a very real help to many children who face hardship and early death Sister Natalia described how last year with the arrival of the first volunteer group the forest of white crosses was halted in its advance across the field given to her for the burial of AIDS-infected infants A native of the region her commitment and that of the whole diocese of Kokstad is bringing aid to this forgotten corner of the “Rainbow Nation” I’ll never forget the Mass at the Franciscan Mission in Hardenberg The sound of South African harmonies still echoes in my ears It was one long celebration with song and movement and spontaneous prayer Truly these people understand what it is to be in community together and I suspect that it is their very poverty that makes faith so natural and so real There was also their palpable joy at having ‘visitors’ – people to share their life for a couple of weeks and experience perhaps their grieving for relatives lost through AIDS or their joy at victory for the local football team on the hilltop pitch “Singamaphuthi ahlathi linye” is a Xhosa proverb meaning “We are blue-bucks of one forest” and it is the equivalent of our expression “We’re in the one boat” I think this is what they felt as we walked with them up to the hilltop or jumped into the back of a pick-up truck or ‘bakkie’ It had taken a lot of persuasion for them to believe that we would arrive at all because the authorities have promised so much and delivered so little Another promise of help is so easily made and it is so disappointing when it is not honoured “They won’t believe you’re coming until they see you” we were told and perhaps that is why we were so over-awed by the ululations and song and dance that welcomed us during the first liturgy The hope is that this will be the first of many volunteer efforts in this region formerly known as the Transkei Enormous work remains to be done on the three fronts of medical care educational assistance and child-care focussed on orphans With
