The absence of MGNREGA Job Card forces laborers to work on lower wages for longer hours in Kaushambhi, Uttar Pradesh. Job Cards can be issued to BPL families in rural areas so that they can get 100 days of work in or around their village itself. 15 people have approached the Village Head several times but to no avail.
CC Mahesh Kumar and the community wants their Job Cards to be made and appeal to the BDO for help.
