While the SGSY (self-employment programme) was highly participative in nature and empowered the poor to a great extent, the SGRY (wage employment programme) was implemented by the government and the poor in the community were the passive beneficiaries.
(31) In poverty ridden areas, welfare schemes like pension, Indira Awas Yojana, SJGSY, SGRY, irrigation development are meant to transfer public resources to most vulnerable sections.
Since then the names have changed, but objectives have not; and the current schemes in the Ministry such as SGSY, SGRY, National Rural Employment Guarantee Programme (NREGA) and IWDP (including DPAP and DDP) too are serving the three good old aims of promoting self-employment, wage employment and area development respectively.
Food allocations are done by the Food Ministry to the States for TPDS on the basis of their share in poverty, and on the directions of other Ministries for welfare schemes [(RD) for SGRY, Human Resource Development (HRD) for Mid-day Meals, etc.].
This has meant that Assam now gets 7.47 per cent share in allocations in SGSY and SGRY, whereas its share in the number of poor in the country is only 3.22 per cent.
Notwithstanding the above provisions, the allocation to the States/Districts for SGRY is subject to the minimum allocation of Rs 25,000/--to each of those village panchayats, which were receiving less than Rs 25,000/--as on 1.4.2001 (increased to Rs 50,000 from 2004-2005).
Of the seven schemes under consideration in this paper, the share of the States for the largest scheme, SGRY and NFFWP, comes to roughly 12 per cent, as the food component is given free (it was 5 kg per day per worker, but reduced to 3 kg since September 2005 in view of food Shortages).
SGRY is a wage employment programme and was launched on 25th September 2001 by merging Employment Assurance Scheme (EAS) and Jawahar Gram Samridhi Yojana (JGSY).
The major objective of the study is to evaluate and assess the performance of SGRY in Punjab during the period of six year starting from 2002-03 to 2007-08.
Basically secondary data has been used to assess the performance of SGRY in Punjab.
Though basically this study has been undertaken to evaluate the performance of SGRY for the period of six years but the availability of data constrained it.
* SGRY is centrally sponsored scheme being implemented with an annual allocation of about Rs.
