Direct Payment for MNREGA Workers; No Middlemen!

A step has been taken by the government in order to address the problem of corruption in the ambitious rural job guarantee scheme. With this program, workers under the MNREGA all over the country will be getting direct payment of their work. This is definitely a good step that is taken by the government.



This scheme will be able to check bogus identity, reduce delay in payment and it would make payments fast. Workers will now be able to get paid without that much effort on their part since the payment will now come to the beneficiary. This information was provided by Jairam Ramesh, the Rural Development Minister.

The effort to seed in the Aadhaar number of MNREGA workers in NREGASoft and to achieve complete e-Disbursement for MNREGA workers in 46 Districts was due to the efforts of the Finance Ministry    , UIDAI and Rural Development Ministry. In two years time, this scheme will be extended in other districts.
