Andhra Pradesh tops in the implementation of NREGS
According to a study conducted by Mihir Shah and Pramathesh Ambasta of the National Consortium of Civil Society Organisations, the state of Andhra Pradesh has topped the list of states in the implementation of the National Rural Employment Guarantee Scheme (NREGS).
The main finding of the study is that the NREGS is being implemented in the state in an effective manner by employing information technology tools, techniques and through a robust social audit.
All stages of NREGS, from registration of workers to issue of job cards, preparation of work estimates, muster rolls and payment to workers, have been fully computerised. This has ensured prompt payment to workers through an online system, thus avoiding any leaks.
