The Status of MGNREGA as on 7th May, 2018 can be checked from the official MGNREGA website http://nrega.nic.in/netnrega/home.aspx :

• The approved labour budget is 229.89 crore person-days in 2018-19, which is 0.61 percent less than what was approved in 2017-18 viz. 231.31 crore person-days. The approved labour budget was 220.67 crore person-days in 2014-15, 239.112 crore person-days in 2015-16 and 220.9274 crore person-days in 2016-17.

• Labour Budget (LB) under MGNREGA refers to advanced labour estimate for execution of a shelf of works for the next financial year. The advance assessment of labour demand in a district takes into account seasonality aspects along with the examination of employment and livelihood opportunities in the respective rural areas. On the basis of LB estimates, the Central Government projects its central liability towards the districts. For more information, go to https://bit.ly/2HX9ISI , https://bit.ly/2FQBuKB,
