Mahatma Gandhi Employment Guarantee Act 2005, is an Indian labour law and social security measure that aims to guarantee the 'right to work'
The MGNREGA was initiated with the objective of "enhancing livelihood security in rural areas by providing at least 100 days of guaranteed wage employment in a financial year, to every household whose adult members volunteer to do unskilled manual work". Another aim of MGNREGA is to create durable assets (such as roads, canals, ponds and wells). Employment is to be provided within 5 km of an applicant's residence, and minimum wages are to be paid
Remote Sensing (RS) and Geographical information system (GIS) can be effectively used to collect, store and analyze Mahatma Gandhi NREGA assets (Watershed locations, Farm ponds, percolation tanks, check dams, road layer, Irrigation Channels etc). With the use of GIS in the area of asset management, it is possible to visualize and understand the geographical context of an asset and improve the efficiency of asset management. Spatial location is a major common aspect of all the asset data and GIS can map all the assets along with information for visualization and proper decision making.
The Mahatma Gandhi NREGA GIS Solution intends to provide a single and integrated view of asset information system pan rural India. GIS enabled portal (e-Governance) will act as a gateway to facilitate and coordinate the exchange and sharing of geospatial data between stakeholders from various jurisdictional levels in the spatial data community. This will facilitate to search, locate and publish geospatial data wherein end users can access, share and publish (with appropriate log-in authenticity) in response to the needs of diverse user groups. The GIS enabled portal will maintain, process, store, distribute and improve the utilization of geospatial data for planners, decision makers and public.
An interactive web GIS-based management System will maintain entire information of MGNREGA assets.
The system will allow users to create new data, update existing data related to assets, generate queries, spatial query such as buffer, reports, maps, etc. This will help the Department in possessing a valuable
digital database (both spatial and non-spatial) for the entire country. Properly defined customized queries will also be made available for day-to-day planning and management of the MGNREGA assets.
The state’s performance in MGNREGA has been on par with the national average but the potential for the
scheme expansion in terms for average person days and coverage of work is large.
The 'Aspirational Districts Program', was launched by the Hon'ble Prime Minister in January, 2018 with the objective to quickly and effectively transform 117 most backward districts across 28 States through convergence of government programs / schemes. During the Empowered Committee meeting for FY 2019- 20, it was observed that the performances of majority of the aspirational districts were below the state average. The analysis of the performance of the 117 Aspirational District was done for FY 2018-19 which reveals that many districts were lagging behind in the key deliverables of Mahatma Gandhi NREGS.It has been noted that the GIS based planning can lead to accelerated development of backward regions/ aspirational districts.
Cluster Facilitation Project
Cluster facilitation project wish to strengthened the implementation of MGNREGS through strong GIS focused implementation approach in Aspirational District Blocks and Backward block . CFP under MGNREGA will work in convergence with National Rural Livelihoods Mission in the state for development of enabling eco-system in the grassroot level supported by NRLM based CBOs. The Project cover key developmental aspects in terms to livelihoods generation such as improving agricultural allied activity and natural resource management works under MGNREGA. It also ensures priority inclusion of the most vulnerable communities (SCs/STs HHs) in MGNREGA works.
The CFP has a vision of addressing poverty in aspirational districts/backward areas with a multi-pronged strategy of leveraging the synergies of different flagship programme of the Central Government/State Governments in convergence with Mahatma Gandhi NREGS through better coordination, planning and its implementation.
In the context of the above UNDP will technically support Government of Uttarakhand in implementation of Cluster Facilitation. Therefore as a part of the above plan Block Livelihood Experts (Agriculture and Allied) will be onboarded.
