ABSTRACT
This study reports on a survey of 1705 users of 1487 assets created under the Mahatma Gandhi National Rural Employment Guarantee Scheme in six states. The study found that 90 percent of asset created, physically exists in field. It provides evidence that MGNREGA assets support agriculture and benefit a large number of small and marginal farmers. An overwhelming 85 percent of the respondents considered the assets as very useful, while only two percent felt they were useless. Overall, this study suggests that the MGNREGA is beneficial for farm sector.
