Rural people have been actively involved in MNREGA from its inception, notably from marginalised groups like as Scheduled Castes (SCs) and Scheduled Tribes (STs). Throughout the program’s implementation, the percentage of Scheduled Castes (SCs) and Scheduled Tribes (STs) engaging in MGNREGA job possibilities has continuously remained high at the national level, ranging from 40 to 60 percent. Even throughout the outbreak, the plan was fairly successful in terms of employment creation. The study’s findings show that the effort had a positive impact on developing sustainable lives for rural residents. Furthermore, it has improved rural labourers’ capacity to bargain in the rural labour market.
