Govt releases Rs 12k cr for rural job scheme
The Centre on Saturday re leased `12,230cr to states for rural job flagship scheme MGNREGS, three days after the SC pulled it up for not doling out adequate funds for the project, especially in droughthit areas. The amount will take care of pending wage liability for 2015-16. The last fiscal saw the highest-ever MGNREGS expenditure at `41,371cr, of which `30,139cr went towards paying ages, the rural development minister said.
