Meenangadi: All employees working under the NREGA scheme would get payment directly to their bank accounts through electronic fund management system. Instead of giving cheque, employees can withdraw the money directly. The first phase of the project was inaugurated at Meenangadi village panchayat. The new system will come into effect soon once the work is completed. At present employees need to wait for a maximum of 14 days for the attendance sheet to reach office and to get their pay. The project would be extended to all panchayats in Wayanad by next month. In Meenangadi there are 5500 working under NREGA.
