Direct employment is generated under Mahatma Gandhi National Rural Employment Guarantee Act (MGNREGA). Pradhan Mantri Awaas Yojana-Gramin (PMAY-G) and Pradhan Mantri Gram Sadak Yojana (PMGSY) also have direct and indirect bearing on employment generation. Rural Road Development Plan: Vision 2025 document estimates that 25 percent of PMGSY expenditure creates direct wage employment. The expenditure on PMAY-G results in direct wage employment and derived demand for production, procurement and transportation of construction material which generates indirect employment. Employment generated in the last three years and current year under these three programmes is given in the table below:
