    Problems on implementation of MGNREGS in Keonjhar District. 

Ø       Labourers are not coming suo-motto to the work site. 

Ø       Line Departments are overburdened with their departmental work and showing less interest in execution of MGNREGS Projects. 

Ø       In summer much renovation projects were not taken up, as  the villagers shown less interest in dewatering the Tanks for renovation apprehending shortage of water. 

Ø       Though a lot of Farm Ponds were sanctioned for excavation in the land of BPL and registered Job-seekers land. They did not come forward to dig their cultivable land. 

Ø       In the Block like Joda, Champua and Jhumpura , the labourers are engaged in Mines and Factories and are getting more wages than the prescribed wages under MGNREGS. 

Ø       In summer, due to  hit wave the Job-seekers were discouraged to work in the day time, hence the progress of work in the projects are not up to mark.

It is observed that, only a small group of Labourers come to work regularly. Though employment offered to engage more labourers, they are not in a mood to join in the work, Though it is a demand driven scheme.
