As you are aware, the Ministry of Rural Development has rolled out GeoMGNREGA - the GIS implementation of Mahatma Gandhi NREGA in public domain on 30th November 2016. The initiative have laid emphasis on transparency and accountancy  in the system. As on today more than 1 crore  of Mahatma Gandhi NREGA assets are already geotagged and available in public domain for viewing. The Ministry acknowledges the immense contribution of the States/UTs  in this regards. The performance of GeoMGNREGA in States/UTs  is attached as Annexure I. 

It is desired that all works completed under Mahatma Gandhi NREGA should be geotagged in a time bound manner. States/UTs should ensure that whatever work is completed w.e.f. 01/04/2017 must be geotagged within one month from date of completion of work. The new dashboard reports enabled on the GeoMGNREGA Bhuvan Portal should be used regularly monitor performances in the State. 

The Asset Id and Geotagging Targets for the month of May 2017 are attached as Annexure II. A Video Conferencing on progress in GeoMGNREGA implementation by States / UTs will be held under the Chairpersonship of Joint Secretary (MGNREGA) on 12th May, 2017 at 3:00 pm. The review will be taken on the following:-
