AFP Starting today,IndiaSpendwill analyse the successes and failures of this scheme and the challenges it faces in a three-part series This first part analyses budget allocations to find that despite heightenedfarm unrest this year the government has set aside the least proportion of money for the scheme – 48 percent of the budget of the rural development ministry – in the three years since 2016-17 Reduced funding has resulted in 48 percent fewer projects getting completed over the six years to 2016 Although expenditure on wages now constitutes 73 percent of expenditure against the stipulated 60:40 wages-to-materials ratio under MGNREGS guidelines delays in wage payment are frequent as the second part will explore The final part will focus on how women in the state of Kerala have benefitted from MGNREGS and what lessons that holds for policymakers This investigation is part ofIndiaSpend’s series on the government’s performance on key flagship programmes in the run-up to the 2019 elections Inadequate funding “There is massive under-funding of [MGNREGS] by the Centre leading to dilution of the programme” Rajendran Narayanan assistant professor at the School of Liberal Studies at Azim Premji University (APU) toldIndiaSpend He said allocation for MGNREGS as a percentage of gross domestic product (GDP) has steadily fallen–in 2010-11 it was 053 percent of GDP and in 2017-18 042 percent Adjusting for inflation and percentage of GDP (13-17 percent) the allocation for 2017-18 should have been no less than Rs 71000 crore Narayanan said The actual allocation was Rs 48000 crore Making this Rs 48000 crore allocation the government had claimed it was the highest ever However the programme had accumulated arrears of close to Rs 11644 crore from the previous year that had to be paid Narayanan said adding that after taking out the arrears the allocation amounted to about Rs 36000 crore The allocation for the current year 2018-19 is no more than last year’srevised estimate(additional funds requested beyond the budget allocation to meet excess expenditure) of Rs 55000 crore As a proportion of the rural development ministry’s expenditure too MGNREGS spending is now the lowest in three years In 2012-13 the share of MGNREGS was 55 percent of the ministry’s allocation Since then it has dropped seven percentage points to 48 percent The central government is responsible for 96 percent of MGNREGS implementation costs as per the schemeguidelines: It pays the wages for unskilled and semi-skilled labour and up to three-fourths of the cost of materials used The state governments pay theunemployment allowanceand the remaining cost of materials An applicant is entitled to an unemployment allowance if they are not given work within 15 days of their application being received The allowance is at least one-fourth the wage rate for the first 30 days and not less than half the wage rate for the remaining period of the financial year Between 2012-13 and 2017-18 no more than 10 percent of households got 100 days of employment each fiscal year defeating the professedobjectiveof enhancing livelihood security in rural areas In 2017-18 the households provided100 daysof employment fell further by four percentage points to 6 percent compared with 2012-13 as per figures available on 28 April 2018 Source: MGNREGA Dashboard *Figures have been rounded off When MGNREGS expenditure overshoots the allocation by the central government state governments make up the shortfall which becomes a ‘pending liability’ for the Centre–the arrears mentioned above – thisbrieffrom Accountability Initiative explains The cumulativeliabilitiesuntil 2017-18 amounted to Rs 12601 crore twice the liabilities of Rs 6355 crore in 2015-16 Source: Accountability Initiative 2018 Accountability Initiative 2012 *Budget Estimate 2018-19 Assets created are useful but few projects get completed The scheme is designed to generate employment and create durable assets in rural areas With expenditure overshooting allocated budget asset creation has been affected largely due to payment delays “I do digging work mostly [under MGNREGS] I worked as a farm labourer before this” Lal toldIndiaSpendin November 2017 Since MGNREGS employs unskilled manual labour workers like him are often involved in digging-related works for soil conservation horticulture creation of sheds and farm ponds etc All such works fall under the natural resource management (NRM) component of MGNREGS which account for 100 of the 153 kinds ofprojectsthat can be undertaken under the scheme Of all NRM projects 71 are water-related works such as creating recharge wells water harvesting structures and check dams Thanks to NRM projects 78 percent of households reported an increase in the water table ranging from 30 percent in Muktsar in Punjab to 95 percent in Vizianagaram in Andhra Pradesh according to a 2017studyof 30 districts in 29 states conducted by the Institute of Economic Growth a think-tank Further 66 percent of households said there was more fodder available after water-conservation projects on public and private lands belonging to marginal and small farmers (farmerswho cultivate up to 25 acres and 5 acres of land respectively) Verification of 926 MGNREGS wells across six randomly selected districts in Jharkhand found that 60% of sanctioned MGNREGS wells were completed according to this May 2016Economic and Political Weeklyreport Nearly 95 percent of completed wells were being utilised for irrigation leading to a near tripling of agricultural income “Assets do get created on the lands of small and marginal farmers” APU’s Narayanan said “For example land leveling is something that a farmer can requisition from the gram panchayat It isn’t true that only large farm owners are benefiting from the scheme” However nearly 12 percent of all sanctioned wells were abandoned before completion reportedly due to payment-related issues the report said The scheme is designed so that material ratios are lower than labour or wage costs Avani Kapur director of Accountability Initiative toldIndiaSpend citing as examples works such as water conservation pond digging and tree plantation that require little material input “Programmes in which material costs are significant such as sanitation or housing are usually run as convergence programmes with existing schemes” she said The gram sabha (village council) selects the works to be undertaken in the panchayat and is expected to uphold the spirit of MGNREGS’ demand-driven approach Often this is not the case however “If asset creation becomes targets-based and top-down then one will hazard creating assets that are not useful” said Narayanan “How can somebody sitting in the state capital know or decide what is best for a gram panchayat that is far away” The law under which MGNREGS operates clearly intended a gram panchayat-led demand-driven scheme he added At the same time the quality of works has also been a cause for concern One of the fallouts of low fund allocation of late has been that the recommended labour-to-material ratio of60:40has not been maintained The percentage ofwater conservation and water harvestingprojects completed fell from 57 percent in 2009-10 to 25 percent in 2016-17 “Once you close a work officially it becomes very hard to reopen (you’ll have to get three types of sanction–technical administrative and financial) That is one reason for the percentage of works completed to remain low” said Reetika Khera an economics professor at the Indian Institute of Technology in Delhi The proportion of works completed has mostly remained below 50 percent through the 12 years of MGNREGS and has been falling in recent years In2016-17 work completed dropped nearly 13 percentage points to 274 percent from 156 percent the previous year The present allocation is unlikely to improve the situation Wages unpaid “They owe me Rs 6000 for the work I have done” said Sukhrani a 50-year-old woman who goes by one name sitting on acharpai(string bed) in her small unplastered home in Mavai village in Banda district She said two people in her family have enrolled under MGNREGS “It’s been two months we haven’t been able to afford milk We scrounge and borrow to feed ourselves We don’t even have slippers” she said “Sometimes we sell or rent parts of our field” Delays in wage payment have been a constant throughout MGNREGS implementation Theguidelinesrecommend that wages be paid within 15 days of closing of the ‘muster roll’ the attendance register for a site However a recentstudyby Azim Premji University has found that 78 percent of payments were not made on time and as many as 45 percent payments did not include compensation for delayed payment as per guidelines Governmentdatashow the percentage of wages unpaid increased from 635 percent in February 2018 to 855 percent in March 2018 to 99 percent in April 2018 which part two of this series will explore in greater detail This is the first of a three-part series on the successes and failures of the Mahatma Gandhi National Rural Employment Guarantee
