The newly adopted National Mobile Monitoring Software (NMMS) program is not functioning properly in local areas, according to PRI leaders in the East Siang district, due to a technical malfunction, which is causing problems in proper monitoring of ongoing MGNREGA construction activities.
NMMS app was launched to ensure appropriate monitoring of MGNREGA programs
The NMMS app was launched to ensure appropriate monitoring of MGNREGA programs and to take real-time attendance of workers at worksite locations, as well as geotagged images of them.
As a result, the program allows for speedier payment processing.
According to Ruksin ZPM Aruni Jamoh and the GPCs of Ngorlung-Ralung village, the workers are concerned about their daily salaries because officials from the rural development (RD) department are unable to take real-time attendance of the workers due to a faulty mobile application.
The GPCs of Ngorlung-Ralung claims that the RD office has hired them to oversee the ongoing MGNREGA programs in their villages, but has failed to provide them with the necessary assets and facilities.
Moreover, local MLA Ninong Ering was advised by PRI leaders to raise the problem with the state government and move to the relevant ministry for prompt correction.
According to RE Junior Engineer Bhupendra Singh, the NMMS application isn’t working properly, causing delays in processing online entries for ongoing projects.
Officials from the RD department said that during 2021-22, Rs 4.36 crores have been approved to implement 97 MGNREGA programs in Ruksin block, and seven schemes worth Rs 27.56 lakhs are being implemented in Ngorlung-Ralung village.
