The proper implementation of Mahathma Gandhi  National Rural Employment Guarantee Act (MGNREGA) remained a problem in Churachandpur district of Manipur, resulting in denial of rights to the beneficiaries under the Act. In December 2010, the Union Ministry of Rural Development expressed dissatisfaction over the failure of the state government to adhere to the guidelines of implementing MGNREGA with regard to holding of Vigilance & Monitoring Committee meetings. The information uploaded by the State Government on the Ministry’s website shows that no State level Vigilance & Monitoring meetings were held in the state in the last two years.
Funds under the Act were diverted or embezzled.  On 2 October 2014, all village chiefs and Job card holders  charge  the implementing agency District Rural Development Agency (DRDA) and  allegedly diverting huge amounts of MGNREGA funds meant for payment of wages to job cards holders of Churachandpur district.
In November 2014, Job card holders and various Village authorities of the district  alleged that the concerned agency DRDA had misappropriated a sum of Rs 5,27,646 sanctioned and Cut five percent  for undertaking various works under the MGNREGA. As a result, the daily wages for 25 days were not released to the job-card holders till date.
