PROMOTION OF SOCIAL ACCOUNTABILITY » SOCIAL AUDIT IN MGNREGA : COLLABORATION WITH GOVERNMENT OF GUJARAT
 
 
Unnati entered into a collaborative agreement with the Department of Rural Development, Government of Gujarat to make strategic capacity building interventions to make MGNREGA implementation effective. A group of professionals were deputed to the Department to support the State Programme Coordinator in the areas of training, IEC, grievance redressal, social audit and programme monitoring. In the entire process, our experience in setting up a system for social audit was noteworthy. To facilitate social audit in all the panchayats of Gujarat, a cadre of social audit facilitators were identified and trained under the name ‘Taluka Resource Group’. In total 1291 independent facilitators were selected and trained at the district level by 15 master trainers. A manual and film was developed for training of the facilitators. These facilitators facilitated two rounds of social audit during November 2009 and February 2010. To provide feedback on the quality of social audit, 56 colleges from nine universities were invited to observe the process. In total 3909 gram sabhas (37%) were observed. This initiative was led by the Principal Secretary, Rural Development and Secretary Higher Education. The universities and the college faculties were oriented on social audit process.
