Abstract

Kerala has its own place with respect to the implementation of several anti-poverty programs and employment generation programs. As a result, Kerala has attained remarkable achievement in social development by way of improvement in literacy, education, employment generation, and above all reduction in poverty. Recently the Government of Kerala introduced a new urban employment guarantee scheme named Ayyankali urban employment guarantee scheme for reducing poverty by providing employment to the urban people.  The present study particularly focuses on the nature and functioning of the Ayyankali urban employment guarantee scheme and also understands the program's impact.
