Ayyankali Urban Employment Guarantee Scheme (AUEGS) aims at enhancing the livelihood security of people in urban areas by guaranteeing hundred days of wage-employment in a financial year to a urban household whose adult members volunteer to do unskilled manual work. This also aims to provide a strong, rights-based social safety net for the people in the urban areas of Kerala by giving a fall-back employment source, when other employment alternatives are scarce or inadequate.
