Poverty eradication is one of the major objectives of planned development. The magnitude of the problem is still quite staggering. Economic growth is important. Economic growth creates more resources and has the potential of creating more space for the involvement of the poor. But the involvement of the poor depends on the sources of growth and the nature of growth. If the growth is sourced upon those sectors of the economy or those activities that have a natural tendency to involve the poor in their expansion, such growth helps poverty eradication. One of the basic reasons for poverty is lack of income and purchasing power attributable to lack of productive employment and considerable underemployment and not to lack of employment per se. There would be schemes for income generation through supplementary employment guarantee programmes to ensure that the poor have purchasing power to access to foodgrains at prices they can afford. In reality the job guarantee is the equivalent of using a band-aid to staunch a haemorrhage. Under conditions of acute distress in India’s countryside, the government has pledged to provide one member of every rural household 100 days work per year. The NREGP is patterned after the Maharashtran state government’s Employment Guarantee Scheme (EGS). This book deals with the empirical studies related to the impact of MGNREGP on poverty in rural India.
