The Rural Employment Guarantee Scheme has been launched in Bihar as a sequel to the National Rural Employment Guarantee Act (NREGA), 2005. It guarantees 100 days of employment in a financial year to any rural household whose adult members are willing to do unskilled manual work. In case of failure to provide the employment, the worker is to be compensated with unemployment allowance. This Scheme has been launched in 23 districts of Bihar in February 2006. Simultaneously, the State has also introduced the Bihar State Rural Employment Guarantee Scheme (BREGS) in another 15 districts with funds and on the same pattern as the National Rural Employment Guarantee Scheme (NREGS).
