Issue:

  • As there is always an issue of late payment in MGNREGA.

What was done:

  • Payment through aadhaar no. shows more transparency in the system. A team has been formed at district and block level. At block level target has been fixed to collect the data as well as to enter in the system. We regular monitor the collection and entry of aadhaar no. in MGNREGA soft.

Impact:

  • Through all our efforts our district achieved the second position in aadhaar seeding in MGNREGA soft.
