State Panchayat Minister Pulak Roy said, “West Bengal is the first state in the country in terms of manpower and during this period a total of 1,06,98,452 workers have been employed under the MNREGA project.” West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee has often expressed her dissatisfaction with the reduction in allocations for the MNREGA project.

There is a huge demand for work in Bengal under the 100-day project. Panchayat officials claimed that the central government had initially approved (100 Days Work) a budget of 22 crore man-days for West Bengal for the current financial year. However, due to the huge demand for work under the 100-day employment project in the wake of the Kovid-19 epidemic, the state achieved the target by October 2021. The West Bengal government then sought additional man-days, after which the Center approved another 50 million man-days. It also ended in December last year.
