जब यह योजना लागू की गई थी, तब इसका नाम नरेगा योजना था, जिसने राष्ट्रीय ग्रामीण रोजगार गारंटी अधिनियम, 2005 को पूर्ण रूप दिया। लेकिन कुछ समय बाद इस योजना का नाम बदलकर MGNREGA कर दिया गया, जिसका पूर्ण रूप महात्मा गांधी राष्ट्रीय ग्रामीण रोजगार गारंटी अधिनियम है। यह योजना ग्रामीण क्षेत्रों में काम करने के लिए लोगों के अधिकार की गारंटी देती है। इस योजना के तहत, ग्रामीणों द्वारा कुओं, तालाबों, सड़कों और नहरों जैसे लंबे समय तक अचल संपत्तियों का निर्माण कार्य किया जाता है। इसलिए, मनरेगा देश के ग्रामीण क्षेत्रों पर अधिक ध्यान देता है, जहां अप्रयुक्त या कम-उपयोग वाले ग्रामीण कार्यबल का उपयोग करने पर ध्यान केंद्रित किया जाता है।
