Few takers for job scheme in Kovai

M Rafi Ahmed|ENS Coimbatore JOBS galore for villagers, but very few takers for the National Rural Employment Guarantee Scheme (NREGS). And the District Rural Development Agency (DRDA) here has left no stone unturned to popularise the scheme across the rural belt. Sources said lack of interest among the villagers was the reason for the scheme facing hiccup. However, a DRDA official said people were now keen on taking up jobs after a series of meetings conducted by panchayat presidents who are the implementing agency for NREGS.
