We take up studies, brief and quick assessment since we consider them as important and modern tool to advocate for required
changes. Pragati Abhiyan is conducting various studies to asses poverty and options for removing poverty.
These are some of the important social studies we are associated with –
Pragati Abhiyan anchored a series of studies to strenghten MGNRGA in
Maharashtra, independelty as well as with the Govrenment of Maharashtra.
There are two set of questions that dominate the discourse of NREGA. One is
obviously about leakages and corruption through ghost laborers’, fake
musters and such; and the administrative inefficiencies of delay start of works,
delayed payments and inadequate days of work made available. Another set
of questions are pertaining to the effects problems in agricultural labor market
in terms of wages, labor supply shortages and migration. The usefulness,
relevance of assets has also been a concern voiced regularly by critiques. We
look at these two set of issues as issues of Governance and Impact. The first
set of questions is related to Governance and the other set of questions is
about understanding impact. These studies are in process.
