Agartala: There are allegations galore emanating from different parts of the State that workers under the MGNREGA scheme are not getting their wages on time. Reports from Kanchanpur, Kumarghat, Kamalpur and other places states that hundreds of MGNREGA workers are knocking at the doors of the banks on a daily basis only to return empty handed.

Official sources claim that the payment order was passed on December 27 but there is to answer as to why the money has not been deposited in the accounts of the workers. Jyaggeswar Reang, Block Development Officer of Laljuri Block, admitted that there has been a lapse in payment.

Non-payment of wages is causing serious hardship to the villagers with many not even having enough money to buy products from fair price shops.
