Abstract:

In contextual to large public expenditure for alleviation of poverty through generation of employment under Mahatma Gandhi National Rural Employment Guarantee Act (MGNREGA) and Swarnajayanti Gram Swarozgra Yojana (SGSY) in particular, the study try to take a stock as to how those flagship programmes impact on the empowerment level of the people apart from generating employment and livelihood. The study was conducted in Imphal East and Churachandpur districts of Manipur. A total of 185 respondents were interviewed to assess the impact on empowerment level of the respondents. 50 respondents each from beneficiaries of MGNREGA, beneficiaries of SGSY, beneficiaries of both (MGNREGA & SGSY) and 35 non beneficiaries respondents were selected based on probability proportionate to size sampling, thus, forming a sample size of 185 respondents. The study reveals that after working under employment and livelihood linked programmes a positive impact could be observed on empowerment level of the beneficiaries of employment and livelihood linked programmes (MGNREGA & SGSY). A significant difference among the four groups (beneficiaries of MGNREGA, beneficiaries of SGSY, beneficiaries of both MGNREGA & SGSY and non-beneficiaries) in terms of empowerment was also observed; with highest (56.00) mean score obtained by SGSY beneficiaries.
