Participation of scheduled castes in developmental programmes with special reference to MGNREGS in Ananthapuramu district of Andhra Pradesh
In this paper, an attempt is made to discuss the extent to which Scheduled Castes participate and benefit from MGNREGS in Ananthapuramu district, where the prestigious programme was launched by the Government of India with the help of secondary data as well as a review of existing studies. Since MGNREGS has been one of the largest social protection programmes in the world, it is essential to understand the extent to which SC households have benefited from the programme. As these households are typically vulnerable and wage labour-dependent, MGNREGS has built-in provisions to see that SC households indeed benefit from the scheme.
