eighth season of Bigg Boss More from the world of Entertainment: “Both the scenarios are totally different but I am having fun getting back with them Very few people have connected with me on the show and these two are among them and they are my friends now That’s because in Bigg Boss you are put into a situation where you are deprived of so many things you are forced… or you just get irritated… But that doesn’t mean you are a bad human being It is about handling the situations So these people (Pritam and Sambhavna) handled them well” said the actor who was one of the most controversialcontestants on her season Karishma Tanna and Pritam developed a friendship when they participated on Bigg Boss 8 in 2014 About the current season of Bigg Boss she said “I haven’t watched it but I know a couple of names who I keep hearing about on various platforms I think Lopa (Lopamudra Rut) Bani (Bani J) Manveer (Manveer Gurjar) and Manu (Manu Punjabi) are quite popular I hope the best contestant wins” For all the latest Entertainment News download Indian Express App IE Online Media Services Pvt Ltd More Related NewsPublished: July 18 2014 11:37 pm In the name of harmonisation of the MGNREGA with other rural development initiatives the former risks submergence in initiatives already suffering from political clientelism and leakage of funds (Source: PTI) Related News By: Raghav Gaiha and Shylashri Shankar In his budget speech Arun Jaitley shied away from taking a tough stand on the MGNREGA In a seemingly non-controversial comment he emphasised that “wage employment would be provided under MGNREGA through works that are more productive asset creating and substantively linked to agriculture and allied activities” The subtext however is controversial As argued below far from a benign neglect it will be a slow kill Recent debate shows a diversity of views ranging from a defence of the MGNREGA in its present form against its proposed dilution into a scheme without any “guarantee” to a case for raising the outlay to build assets on small farms The dilution of the guarantee would be disastrous for the “entitlements” of the poor and vulnerable (‘No going back on MGNREGA’ Nikhil Dey and Aruna Roy IE July 10) With all its drawbacks — mistargeting corruption and unusually long delays in payment of wages — the MGNREGA has not only raised awareness about entitlements among disadvantaged groups but has also enabled them to demand them But optimistic accounts tend to fall short on the failures The design and implementation failures of the MGNREGA have been pervasive and large Its targeting accuracy in the four states studied (Madhya Pradesh Rajasthan Tamil Nadu and Andhra Pradesh) varied enormously based on household surveys conducted by us (and others) during 2007-10 Two insights from our analysis are pertinent First frequent hikes in the minimum wage rate under the MGNREGA weaken the self-selection of poor but physically dextrous individuals MP had the highest percentage of poor participants (81 per cent) followed by Rajasthan (50 per cent) and Tamil Nadu (40 per cent); in contrast only 28 per cent of Andhra participants were poor In the two southern states the acutely poor’s probability of participating in the scheme was lower than those of others while the moderately non-poor and affluent had higher probabilities suggesting that the better-off benefitted more from it In MP and Rajasthan the acutely poor had the highest probability of participating showing sharper targeting towards those groups in those states In Rajasthan however the affluent had the second highest probability displaying an element of capture by well-off groups Second comparison of the earnings of the poor and non-poor reveals a somewhat worrisome pattern The variation between the daily average MGNREGA wage earned by poor and non-poor groups was low in the two southern states implying there was no discrimination against the poor In Rajasthan too the variation was relatively low However in MP the non-poor’s daily average wage rate was markedly higher than that of a poor participant; the gap between the wage rates of the affluent and acutely poor was even larger This implies that in MP though the affluent worked for fewer days than the acutely poor they were paid more than the latter In most studies and especially in official assessments of the benefits of the MGNREGA transfer benefits are equated with wages earned as a fraction of household income without adjustment for foregone earnings Other collaborative research (with R Jha and M Pandey Australian National University) demonstrates that there is considerable exaggeration of real income transfers without this adjustment Symptoms of corruption comprise fudged muster rolls delays in wage payments pilferage lack of information and low quality or non-active works Insights into the pervasiveness of corruption emerge from our study of complaints by MGNREGA participants Andhra (where 70 per cent were paid weekly and 20 per cent fortnightly) had lower levels of leakage in the wages component than Rajasthan and MP MP beneficiaries by contrast were prey to irregular payments: only 11 per cent got weekly wages 23 per cent fortnightly 9 per cent monthly and over half the beneficiaries got wages when available Poor beneficiaries had a lower awareness of their rights and entitlements under the scheme Over half the workers in Rajasthan and about a third in MP said that payment details had not been read aloud from muster rolls Job card entries had not been made in front of over half the MP workers and about a third of the Rajasthan workers Another strand in the current debate is a shift of focus from community works to proactively promote improvements on the landholdings of small and marginal farmers through the creation of durable assets on the grounds that it will be more beneficial for agricultural productivity and income In other words public funds will be heavily committed to building private assets For example in the name of harmonisation of the MGNREGA with other rural development initiatives the former risks submergence in other initiatives that are already suffering from political clientelism and leakage of funds This flies in the face of the rationale of workfare to build public assets through a self-selection mechanism of low wages and manual work Worse it overlooks available evidence on mistargeting of funds and bribes in the individual beneficiary scheme As a recent matrix on the budget speech shows Jaitley referred to investment 34 times growth 31 times and the MGNREGA just twice So growth mania is likely to dominate the policy agenda If the quotation from the speech is juxtaposed with the case for individual asset creation under the MGNREGA it will slowly kill off this scheme Gaiha former professor of public policy Faculty of Management Studies Delhi University and Shankar senior fellow
