This Act is the first act of its kind in the world, under which employment is guaranteed. Its purpose is to enhance the livelihood security of the families of rural areas. Under this, an adult member of every house is guaranteed to be employed for at least 100 days in a financial year. This job is in reference to physical labour and is provided to the adult person who is willing to do it. The second goal of this act is to create sustainable assets and strengthen the basis of livelihood of rural poor. The purpose of this Act is to deal with the problem of poverty, drought, forest debris, soil erosion, so that employment opportunities arise.

Preparation and implementation of the National Rural Employment Guarantee Act (NREGA) has been seen as an important step.
