provides 100 days of guaranteed employment in a year to every rural household whose adult members volunteer to do unskilled manual work Related News The people of India’s villages carry collective memories of centuries of calamitous losses of sometimes millions of lives in famines Famines have been pushed into history unarguably one of free India’s greatest accomplishments But the same can’t be said about droughts which continue to extract an enormous toll on human suffering At least a third of the residents in India’s countryside are battling drought — many for the third consecutive year Near-zero yields sinking groundwater levels drying streams and reservoirs have resulted in a massive slowdown in agricultural growth — it grew by minus 02 per cent in 2014-15 with no imminent signs of recovery For millions of farmers especially the small and marginal ones who are most dependent on rains there is little food and almost no work alternative The rural reality is stark: Around 55 per cent of households have no land at all and are entirely dependent on manual labour to provide food to their families But outside farming there is little work available in the countryside The human consequences of this massive distress movement of people are inestimable This should be intolerable in a country that boasts of being the fastest growing major economy in the world with stocks of foodgrains in government warehouses ranging from 50 to 80 million tonnes But the avoidable suffering of millions of children women and men in today’s India because they lack food work and water still does not create public outrage much less elementary accountability from governments Even colonial governments were guided in times of scarcity by famine codes which contained detailed guidelines to employ all persons who seek work in low-paid public works to enable survival These were combined with programmes of distress-feeding of children the old and sick and starving; fodder camps for cattle; and the transportation of water In the decades I worked in the civil service we still regarded the preservation of human and animal life during scarcities along with protection of persons from caste and communal violence to be among the highest duties of public service The times today are dramatically different In the glitter of contemporary India the distress of city car drivers in the country’s capital who have to find other modes of transport on alternate days occupies far more public and media attention than the agony of daily survival of millions of people in rural India The highest priority of the Central government in times of scarcity should be to ensure the creation of millions of additional person-days of work in all affected villages Instead we find that it continues a policy of false claims low-resourcing and poor management of highly delayed financial flows Colonial famine codes and scarcity codes of post-colonial India were not legally binding but they spurred local administrations to create millions of person-days of wage employment in a vast battery of village public works Today the duties of governments are written into a law the historic Mahatma Gandhi National Rural Employment Guarantee Act (MGNREGA) which creates legal obligations on governments to create at least 100 days of work in a year for all rural households that seek wage work in rural public works close to their homes Given the scale of distress of landless workers small and marginal farmers and livestock rearing communities in times of recurring scarcity it can reasonably be expected that there would be a huge spurt of demand for employment in these times The finance minister claimed he had allocated the highest ever resources to MGNREGA in the 2016 budget However allocations have actually fallen significantly in real terms from the peak of 06 per cent of GDP in 2010-11 to 026 per cent of GDP in 2016-17 Also if the 2010-11 allocations are adjusted for inflation allocations in 2016-17 should be higher than Rs 66000 crore to actually qualify as the highest ever The allocations made in the current budget is Rs 38500 crore Of this as much as Rs 12590 crore is required to meet the record high of pending liabilities at the end of the last financial year (2015-16) Therefore the amount of resources required to meet wage demands in the current year is only Rs 25910 crore What does this huge bill of pending liabilities represent It simply means that workers have not been paid wages often for several months for work done in the past If wages are delayed so extensively even during times of acute distress then a precariously surviving impoverished person cannot rely on MGNREGA to extend wage and social protection in normally lean times In effect by deliberately delaying fund releases to states the Central government ensures that fewer and fewer workers actually demand work under the programme This is under the law a demand-led programme in which the Central government is legally bound to provide all the resources needed to meet the demands for work up to 100 days per rural household Chronically delayed payments kill the demand for work and thereby subvert the central purpose of the law Drought has been declared in 10 states The Union government made a grand announcement of 50 days additional work in drought affected areas but it did not back it with the allocation of a single additional rupee We estimate that an additional 50 days of work just for drought affected job-card holders would require an additional allocation of Rs 15000 crore — that’s over and above the normal requirements of the programme which have not been made to begin with And the sad reality is that all 10 states ended the year with a negative balance of pending liabilities because of long-delayed releases from the Centre and as a result a mere 7 per cent of households in these states crossed 100 days of work It has become customary for the present government to make tall claims whenever it is confronted with criticism of neglect of the social and farm sectors and of people battling drought A simple reference to actual facts reveals the hollowness of its claims each time Yet each time it seems to hope that people may not notice Mander is a human rights worker and writer For all the latest Opinion News download Indian Express App More

has wrecked the careers of some promising players Qadir was questioning Pakistan Cricket Board’s decision to give complete power to coach Mickey Arthur “I don’t know who is responsible for giving this foreign coach so much power that he has decided to wreck the careers of Sohail Khan and Umar Akmal” Qadir said “But I am really also very disappointed with the chief selector Inzamam-ul-Haq who appears powerless in front of the coach” he added Qadir also said that reaching the semi-finals of Champions Trophy doesn’t justify the treatment meted to Sohial and Umar He went on to say that Arthur has his blue-eyed boys in the team “How does reaching the semis justify the treatment meted out to Sohail and Umar The coach has his own blue-eyed players in the team and Muhammad Aamir is one of them Aamir took a fiver in a test match recently after nearly one and half years In contrast Sohail twice took fivers in the test series in England and has even otherwise performed consistently and yet he is out of the team” Qadir said Sohail and Umar were dropped from team because of fitness issues and Qadir said that less deserving players are in the team “Less deserving players are in the team The way Umar was treated and sent back from England is something the cricket board should investigate not just give Mickey Arthur a free hand to do what he wants” Qadir said Backing Umar to return to the
