    The Mahatma Gandhi National Rural Employment Guarantee Act (MGNREGA) is a programme which needs to focus on generation of wage employment and creation of sustainable and productive assets assuring a sustained source of income for the rural poor. Efforts have been made over a period of time to create quality assets. This photo documentation is a glimpse of the effortsthathavebeenputinbydifferentStatesinthisregard.However,thisaspectofMGNREGAhas received inadequate attention. Our Ministry is laying a lot of emphasis on creation of quality assetsandistakingtakenmajorstepsinthisdirection.

    I am glad that Programme Division MGNREGA has compiled the photographs of various assets in anorganisedmanner.Thiswillhelpthepractitionersinthefieldtoknowaboutthepossibilitiesofasset creation leading to creation of durable assets under MGNREGA in the days to come.

    I am glad to present the photo-documentation of assets which have been created over the years in different parts of the country through MGNREGA, mostly in convergence with other schemes. However,much remains to be done. More number of such assetswhich are productive anddurableandlinkedtoagricultureneedtobecreatedinanenablingenvironment.

  • a journey commences here

    This photo journey takes you through rural India, where the sustainable assets created under the Mahatma Gandhi National Rural Employment Guarantee Act (MGNREGA) have been able to improve the quality of the day-to-day life of the common man. This journey is an answer too. An answer to the question that was taking rounds since the Scheme was

    launched in 2005. Has MGNREGA been able to create assets in rural areas? Through this journey, we

    showcase various types of sustainable assets created under MGNREGA in different States.

    While this photo-journey consists of 450 selected photographs only, we are happy to record that lakhs of

    sustainable assets exist beyond the frame of our lens. This endeavour to collect the photographs reaffirms

    our faith in the fact that MGNREGA is not just a wage-employment programme; it has succeeded to a

    remarkable extent in creating productive and sustainable assets over a period of time
