Abstract (EN)The drop in expenditures under the Mahatma Gandhi National Rural Employment Guarantee Act (MGNREGA) between 2011 and 2015 does not reflect satiation of demand for work. Supply-side factors play an important role in limiting the amount of work available. This dilutes the key objective of the Act – that those in need of work will be guaranteed it. In light of the supply-side rather than demand-based nature of MGNREGA, “discouraged” workers are more likely to wait for work to be provided than actively register demand for it.
