The National Rural Employment Guarantee Act (NREGA) 2005, coming into effect after a long and sustained people’s struggle, can be termed as a People’s Act. This landmark Act qualifies to be a potential tool of empowerment for rural labour. It guarantees employment for 100 days in a year to adult members of rural households who are willing to do unskilled manual labour at a guaranteed minimum wage. It will go down in the history of social security legislations as one which alleviates extreme poverty while protecting economic insecurity and ensuring the right to food.
