NREGA Job Card Registration

NREGA, the National Rural Employment Guarantee Act, is a govt program in India that promises 100 days of work each year to people living in villages. Jobs might include building roads or planting trees, etc.

Getting an NREGA Job Card means you can start working on these projects. This article shows an easy way to apply and get started.
