Demand for unskilled employment under MNREGA

GOA: Demand for unskilled employment under the Mahatma Gandhi National Rural Employment Guarantee Act (MNREGA) increased over 15 fold during the lockdown in Goa, shows data released by the Union ministry of rural development. While 49 households were provided employment in May 2019, 112 households in June 2019, the figure jumped to 795 and 680 households for the same period this year. The data also shows that demand for unskilled labour more than doubled in the month of May and June this year compared to the preceding months.

In comparison, peak demand in 2019-20 was seen during the months of December and January. Along with the increase in demand for employment, the average wage per day also increased from Rs 254 in 2019-20 to Rs 280 per day in 2019-20. The data also shows that demand for employment dropped by 60% in July as Covid restrictions were eased and farming activity tapered off.
