Tripura tops in MGNREGA implementation
Agartala: Tripura has ranked first in implementing the Mahatma Gandhi National Rural Employment Guarantee Act in 2012-13 by providing 86.27 days of work on an average to a rural household, a state minister claimed here today.
"When the national average is 39, the state could provide 86.27 days of work to the job card holders. Tripura secured first position in implementation of the Act," State Rural Development Minister Jitendra Chowdhury told reporters.
MGNREGA authorises 100 days of employment to a member of one family in a year in rural areas.
Tripura is followed by Mizoram (69.25 mandays per household) and Tamil Nadu (51.26 days of work per job card holders).
Chowdhury said women in the state got more jobs than their male counterparts under the scheme.
