Across the country, payments worth Rs.9,124 crore are yet to be paid for work done in the 2016-17 financial year under the MGNREGA. This comes at a time when Prime Minister Narendra Modi has created incentive schemes for rewarding those using the digital payment platform. Important reason for this delay in payment is failure by the government to complete tasks required for making payments.
