NREGS in Agricultural Intensive Area

No reference has been received in the Ministry of Rural Development indicating the negative impact of NREGA on the farming community caused due to any labour shortage. The primary objective of the NREGA is to provide a supplementary wage employment to the rural households on demand. It should operate in a way that other forms of employment opportunities are also available to the people and promote an overall economic development of the country.

The benefits of works on individual lands as given in para 1 (iv) of Schedule I of NREG Act have been extended to small and marginal farmers vide Notification dated 22.7.2009 as per the following amendment :

“Provisions of irrigation facility, horticulture plantation and land development facilities to land owned by households belonging to the Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes or below poverty line families or to beneficiaries of land reforms or to the beneficiaries under the Indira Awaas Yojana of Government of India or that of the small farmers or marginal farmers as defined in the Agriculture Debt Waiver and Debit Relief Scheme 2008.”

The Minister of State in the Ministry of Rural Development, Shri Pradeep Jain Aditya informed the Rajya Sabha today.
