The new National Rural Employment Guarantee Scheme

Two Years back UPA Government rolledout its National Rural Employment Guarantee Scheme. As per scheme , It aims to provide 100 days of guaranteed wage employment  every year to each rural household that needs work. Since the scheme is specifically designed to help the very poor, it has been decided that work will be provided to one person in a poor family. A very Noble scheme indeed.

However, for last two years Government was at its wits end to find ways to make this program successful. Now they have come up with a Winner Idea.

The Law Commission has proposed reducing the minimum age of marriage for men from 21 to 18 years. This would be great now Boys can Marry straight after their schools. This would be great favour to the guys also since now they are spared from the rigor of going thru the motions of getting a good degree/Good Job to impress Gals. I guess now they will be saying "Will you marry me? I got 95% marks".
