NREGS in Andhra Pradesh - a Status check !!!

I always wanted to understand issues on ground first hand - the problems related the implementation of Govt welfare schemes and other programs .

I am now freelancing as a part time consultant with WASSAN. I am working with Ravi, the Coordinator of Bhoomi Kendram – Center for Land & Labor, WASSAN. Its been a wonderful experience so far.

The initial focus is on NREGS (National Rural Employment Guarantee Scheme), the flagship program of the UPA Government. You can download first extensive report as part of an agreement with WASSAN. The link is given below. I signed a 9 month agreement with them for consulting on development issues and preparing reports with occasional field visits. This is to gain a lot of on ground experience on issues related to employment, land, caste, gender etc.

The report is a status check on NREGS Implementation in AP. The report will give a lot of interesting insights. Download the report from here.

I would like to hear form you. Comments are welcome :-)
