Corruption in implementation of NREGA
New Delhi | July 28, 2006 3:47:32 PM IST

Complaints of corruption have been received from certain states in the implementation of the much-touted National Rural Employment Guarantee Act (NREGA), Rural Development Minister Raghuvansh Prasad Singh informed the Lok Sabha today.

”A few complaints in the implementation of the NREGA have been reported. The reports have been referred to the states concerned for examination and for taking remedial action,” Mr Singh said during Question Hour.

In a complaint received from the Madhya Pradesh government, the Centre has deputed two national level monitors (NLM) to look into the allegations made, he said.

He, however, denied the charge made by Ram Kripal Yadav (RJD), amid loud protests, that corruption was rampant in the implementation of the Act in Bihar.

”No complaint has been received from Bihar,” Mr Singh declared, and said he was willing to order an inquiry if desired.

He said the state governments had been instructed by his Ministry to make adequate staff available with the concerned agencies for effective implementation of the Act.
