THE INTERTWINED CONNECTION BETWEEN MGNREGS AND PANCHAYATI RAJ INSTITUTIONS IN KERALA

Devi K.S..

Abstract
The 73rd constitutional amendment made a revolutionary change in the state of Kerala, which delegated the decision-making power to the people through Panchayati Raj Institutions. Mahatma Gandhi National Rural Employment Guarantee Scheme (MGNREGS) is known as the first developmental scheme which assigns a definite role to the PRIs intending to ensure legal right to work and strengthen PRIs. It is an employment guarantee programme to tackle the problems of unemployment, environmental regeneration, agricultural growth, and gender equality. The guidelines of the Act reaffirm that PRIs are the “key stakeholders” of the programme as they are directly involved in rural development.
The paper analyses the role of Panchayati Raj Institutions in the implementation of MGNREGS. It explores the extent to which this scheme has empowered the Panchayati Raj Institutions. It assesses the performance, positive features, and challenges of Panchayats in the process of participatory planning. The paper also examines the new initiatives adopted by PRIs to enhance the quality of the programme. Finally, an effort has been made to suggest suitable measures for strengthening the coordination between PRIs and MGNREGS

Key words: Panchayati Raj Institutions, MGNREGS, Kerala model, Rural development.
