Why do you think NREGA 2005 is referred to as ‘Right to Work’?

Answer :

National Rural Employment Guarantee Act 2005 was launched by the government to provide job opportunities so that people might be able to earn their livelihood. It guarantees at least 100 days work for one member of each family. This program fulfills one of the fundamental rights as per the Constitution and the right is ‘Right to work’.

Every citizen of a country has the right to work and if government is unable to provide more and more job opportunities then it will have to pay daily wages especially to those sections of society who are impoverished. This is why this programme is called ‘Right to Work’.
