The NREGA is the first ever law internationally that guarantees wage employment at an unprecedented scale. The Act came into force on February 2, 2006 and was implemented in a phased manner. Now the NREGA was renamed as Mahatma Gandhi National Rural Employment Guarantee Act (MGNREGA) in 2nd October 2009 by the government order of S.O. 1860 (E), dated 30th July, 2010.
