Abstract:

The present paper aimed at identifying and analyzing the opinions of beneficiaries of MGNREGS and its implementing agencies on planning, implementation and hurdles in implementation of the scheme in Karimnagar and Medak districts of Telangana state. For the purpose of the study, two mandals where comparatively highest amount of money was spent by the government on the scheme and two mandals where lowest amount of money was spent were selected from each district. Again from each mandal, two villages were selected randomly. From each selected village, 4 farmers and 4 labourers were selected who were MGNREGS beneficiaries. The perspectives of the sample people were recorded, analyzed and found that planning process in MGNREGS was very good, a majority of 34.4% of respondents in HEMs and 37.5% in LEMs of Karimnagar expressed it whereas in Medak, 46.9% in HEMs, 34.4% in LEMs felt the same. Regarding implementation, a majority in Karimnagar was not happy with the frequency of payments and staff dedication in implementation in HEMs and it was low in LEMs. Whereas in Medak, both in HEMs and LEMs, they were happy with the frequency of payments. Staff dedication in implementation was at middling level. Effect of social auditing was very high in HEMs and it was moderate in LEMs in both the districts. The major difficulties appeared to be finding out the appropriate and sufficient amount of work for all applicants, preparation of action plans, verification and issuing of job cards, elimination of fake and undeserved candidates respectively in both the districts and when it comes to constraints, illiteracy of the beneficiaries, inadequate professional and administrative staff were found to be the major ones in successful implementation of the scheme and suggested to overcome the same for successful implementation of MGNREGS.
