Campaign launched to streamline schemes under MNREGA

The Ministry of Rural Development has launched Kaam Mango Abhiyan to streamline schemes under the Mahatma Gandhi National Rural Employment Guarantee Act in 11 districts of the State, including Bidar.

The campaign, which began on December 1, will be taken up in select districts in six States. Raichur was initially selected for the abhiyan by the Ministry. The other 10 districts were added by the State government.

The campaign will include creating awareness about the Kaam Mango Abhiyan among village residents, identifying high-risk areas for migration, automatic enrolment of beneficiaries and tracking them at various levels to ensure that they found work and their wages were paid on time. Officials will also visit houses in villages for on-the-spot enrolment of workers. Other initiatives such as training of officials and organising padayatras and street plays to create awareness will be taken up.

Monitoring committees will be set up at the district levels to provide feedback to implementing officers.
