The Mahatma Gandhi National Rural Employment Guarantee Act (MGNREGA) came into force in February 2006 in 200 selected districts in India, say economists Azeez and Akhtar, and is designed to enhance the livelihood security of unorganized workers in rural areas by guaranteeing 100 days of wage employment in a financial year to a rural household whose members volunteer to do unskilled manual work. It also aims to create durable assets and strengthen the livelihood resource base of the rural poor, so the unskilled work suggested in the act addresses causes of chronic poverty like drought, deforestation, and soil erosion.
