Doaba (Kaushambi) workers are hopeful of a huge relief through MNREGA this year because district administration has asked for Rs. 55 crore as labour budget this time from government.
CBI has registered two more cases related to alleged irregularities in the functioning of MNREGA in Uttar Pradesh. According to the sources, CBI has registered cases for criminal conspiracy, fraud and forgery under the section of Indian Penal Code (IPC) and misuse of official post for corruption under the Anti- Corruption Act in two districts of Sant Kabir Nagar and Mirzapur in Uttar Pradesh.
Seeing the upcoming Lok Sabha elections, UPA government is mulling over increasing the number of working days from 100 to 150 under their ambitious MGNREGA program. Sources said that central cabinet will discuss a proposal regarding this on Friday.
107 roads are mired in the sport of MGNREGA in Basti, Uttar Pradesh. As the fiscal year is to pass, the possibilities of construction of these roads are not visible. 52 roads of 31 selected villages in the overall village development yojana have to be constructed. The total length of these roads is fifty kilometers.
