What is nrega job card?

A Job Card is an entitlement card given to any household whose adult member has applied for work under the Mahatma Gandhi NREGA and has expressed a willingness to work in casual manual labour. A total of 100 days of casual manual labour are available to Job Card holders.

The Mahatma Gandhi National Rural Employment Guarantee Act of 2005 allows beneficiaries to have a Work card provided by the Gram Panchayat's competent authority.

The government will provide an additional 40,000 crore for the Mahatma Gandhi National Rural Employment Guarantee Act (MGNREGA) in FY21, allowing states to borrow up to 5% of their GSDP instead of the current 3%, and privatising non-strategic public sector enterprises (PSEs) under a new policy for such units.

How Does the NREGA Scheme Benefit the Poor?

Applicants are eligible for unemployment benefits if no job is found within 15 days of their application. This ensures that if the government fails to offer jobs, certain persons are entitled to such unemployment benefits. 

As a result, work under the NREGA Scheme is a legal right. MGNREGA will be enforced primarily by gramme panchayats (GPs), with contractors prohibited from participating.

NREGA will help protect the environment, empower rural women, reduce rural-urban migration, and promote social equity in addition to providing economic protection and creating rural assets.

 Many provisions are included in the law to ensure that it is managed and implemented effectively. The act specifies the principles and departments responsible for enforcement, as well as a list of permitted works, a funding scheme, monitoring and, most significantly, comprehensive steps to ensure transparency and accountability.

Question and answers

What does a Job Card entail?

The Job Card is a significant document that documents workers' NREGA entitlements. It gives registered households the legal right to apply for jobs, guarantees transparency, and protects employees from fraud.

In the NREGA, how is a household defined?

Household refers to members of a family who are related by blood, marriage, or adoption and who usually live together, share meals, and have a shared ration card.

What role does the door-to-door survey play in identifying NREGA-eligible households?

A door-to-door survey helps recognise qualifying households who have been left out of the Act and want to be enrolled. Every year, each GP should conduct this survey, and it should be done at a time of year when people are not migrating to other areas in search of jobs or for other reasons.

What issues does the Gram Panchayat need to review when a Job Card application is submitted?

The Gram Panchayat must verify that the household is an entity as stated in the application, that the applicant households are local residents of the GP in question, and that the applicants are all adults in the household. The authentication process must be completed within a fortnight of the application being submitted.
