Through this plan many people are benefited especially women benefited lot. The present study shows the performance level in Tamilnadu on fund allotment, actual expenditure, job card issue, physical progress regarding financial and physical progress has been analyzed. The study also suggest by increasing the fund the number of working days for the workers can be increased and participation of the workers will also be increased through this many people under the poverty line will be benefited. We initiate that the experiences of participating in MGNREGA varied depending on how MGNREGA wages compared to market wages in the region, as well as local performance of the program. Although MGNREGA offered some basic employment for marginalized groups, it did not provide extensive help to the most susceptible. However, there was some data of small but important shifts in labour relations. Higher wages, more opportunities for work, improved performance and a greater recognition of the care giving responsibilities of women will be required for this policy to fully meet its goals.
