We can all duck under the fuzz storm of “elitism”, about 50 per cent of the foodgrains allocated to the PDS just disappears into thin air — that is, half of the foodgrains that leave the godowns of the Food Corporation of India (FCI) never reach any ration shop Think of it as black money generation of about Rs 60000 crore a year This black leakage has been supported by every consumer expenditure survey undertaken by the NSS over the last 30 years However the government in the form of the FCI claims that there is zero leakage every year and it has its official website to prove that it distributed 50-60 million tonnes of foodgrains every year to the ration shops The fact that only 30 million tonnes actually reached the ration shop is not of much concern or relevance to the FCI But somehow the NREGA is supposed to be different and subject to very little corruption Why Because defenders like the ILE state that the NREGA involves back-breaking manual work and is therefore self-selecting — only the poorest of the poor would take up a NREGA job This assumes that in order to receive money for “back-breaking” work you actually have to break your back or even be there Unfortunately that is not the case Calculations identical to those undertaken in PDS evaluations show that far from having low leakage the NREGA programme is possibly even more corrupt than the PDS system These calculations are based on the NSS 2009-10 labour and employment survey a survey that contained special and additional questions meant for monitoring and evaluating the NREGA programme Some basic results: the ministry of rural development website claims that in 2009-10 284 crore man-days of work was provided to 526 crore households The NSS survey indicates that 386 crore households worked on the NREGA for 147 crore workdays Leakage — about half (48 per cent) and near-identical to that of the PDS But the similarity does not end there The PDS facts are as follows: 50 per cent of the food disappears and the poor receive only 24 per cent of the food that reaches the ration shop So out of every Rs 100 spent on the PDS the poor received 12 per cent In the case of the NREGA 48 per cent of the jobs accrue to nobody (compare that with 50 per cent of disappearing food) Of the jobs actually provided the poor receive 39 per cent Thus out of every Rs 100 spent on NREGA the poor receive (052×039) or Rs 20 some Rs 8 higher than the PDS So the NREGA is quite corrupt but more “efficient” than the PDS Not so fast Thirty per cent of NREGA expenditures are capital or non-wage expenditures Thus the workers receive only 70 per cent of total expenditures and poor workers receive Rs 14 of every Rs 100 spent in their name A new identity for the ILE — no matter what scheme you cook up the poor get less than 15 per cent When the 28 ILEs wrote the letter the ministry of rural development the ministry in charge of delivering the NREGA was quick to respond In an internal note (but nothing is internal in this web world) it denounced the perpetrators of the letter as individuals seeking to protect their revenue stream never mind the ideology: “In spite of clear evidence of rampant corruption at various places the scheme continues to be presented as a successful scheme This perhaps is due to a solid network of vested interests involving political party functionaries government officials NGOs research institutes and experts desirous of milking the scheme to their advantage” In my many years of observing policymakers and policy statements I have yet to come across such a frank and honest assessment of the tribe to which I belong Congratulations to the ministry of rural development for nailing it A more public airing of this PDS-NREGA comparison presented itself last week when NDTV Dialogues anchor Sonia Singh invited me for a genuine debate on the NREGA more so since former rural development minister Jairam Ramesh was part of the panel But 15 minutes before the show was to begin I was told to go home since Ramesh had cancelled his appearance I returned home only to learn later that Ramesh had miraculously appeared at the TV studio ready to do the show with all the pre-scheduled panellists present sans me The show and ideology and corruption must go on The writer is chairman of Oxus Investments an emerging market advisory firm and a senior advisor to Zyfin a leading financial information company For all the latest Opinion News download Indian Express App More Related News is in the ideology of the beholder, a French national, such as terrorist acts, an FIR would be lodged against the contractor, The Congress MP also took stock of the mid day meal scheme from the officials and said in the primary school in Pure Maddhu village it is not being prepared since the past two months and directives were issued for an inquiry and action into it,000 crore in the next four years, his (Modi) government, And now the social media posts compare ‘Cop vs Cough’…” However.
