Aman Deep Lamba, Naresh Kumar Verma, Manoj Kumar, Anurag Pathak.

Mahatma Gandhi National Rural Employment Guarantee Act (MNREGA) 2005 seems to be
a more advanced and ideal scheme which directly gives “right to employment” to the
deprived and marginalised section of the society and also transforms the area concerned .
MNREGA scheme was implemented in selected districts all over the country in 2006.
Mahatma Gandhi National Rural Employment Guarantee (act) scheme was a joint venture of
the central and state government, sharing a ratio of 90:10. Under the MNREGA scheme for
the first time, material and wage ratio (60:40) was fixed at the district level government,
which proved to be advantageous for women and landless labourers. Engagement of
contractors and use of labour displacing machines are banned by the government. The
Mahatma Gandhi National Rural Employment Guarantee Act (MNREGA) furnishes an
official guarantee of 100 days employment with wages in a financial year to every rural
household, with a reservation of at least 33% for the women workers. MNREGA also make
the assets which can develop the area. In Haryana during 2006, first phase of MNREGA was
implemented in Mahendergarh and Sirsa districts. MNREGA plays an important role to meet
the practical as well as planned requirements for participation of women. It has become an
instrument of empowerment of women in rural areas which has improved their quality of
living and economic condition. This study aims to analyse the role of MNREGA on women
empowerment in the Mahendergarh district of Haryana.
