Abstract
The research was carried out in a selected district Gonda of Uttar Pradesh under two blocks Nawabganj and Wazirganj. Seven villages were randomly selected from the specified blocks, with 20 beneficiaries and 20 non-beneficiaries in each village. Thus, to determine the effect of the Mahatma Gandhi National Rural Employment Guarantee Act (MGNREGA), two hundred landless farmers, marginal, small farmers, and rural poor in each block, Nawabganj, and Wazirganj (one hundred beneficiaries and one hundred non-beneficiaries) was studied. The largest majority in the program, 94.00 percent, agreed that "for beneficiaries, Sunday is also a working day," 92.00 percent agreed that they get "one hundred days of employment in a year", and 87.00 percent expressed that "check dams, retaining walls, and other village works" have been done. Only 56.00 percent of the beneficiaries agreed and admitted that they were provided facilities in the workplace and 51% admitted that there was no gender discrimination in the workplace, respectively. The majority of the respondents (69.00%) agreed that they were aware of the “scheduled work schedule” of the MGNREGA scheme and 58.00% agreed to “know the planned mode of work”. "With reference to the opinion of the beneficiaries, 75.00 percent believe that MGNREGA prevents "unemployed persons seeking jobs from the village" from moving out of the village and 61.00 percent believe that MGNREGA is " provides a source of income for rural residents", respectively.
