While commenting on the national act, Anup noted that One-third Reservation to women in all food for work plan as per the Act and also Ceiling of 100 days made in the act. Since this act will be implemented nationally, minimum wages to be determined by the state. One suggestion is that the muster Roll to be available at the panchayat level. It is also to be seen that wages should be given without gender discrimination.

Adv. Mihir raised concern regarding two state acts, Maharashtra Employment Guarantee Act and Right to Information Act, as he noted that there is possibility that these acts will repealed after the implementation of the National acts.
Ms. Kavita Srivasatava said that National Rural Employment Guarantee Act should be made universal for both rural and urban as present act does not provide for employment guarantee to the disabled and the Urban Poor.
