Abstract: This study highlights construction of a 65 x 65 sector Social Accounting Matrix for Belladamadugu, a predominantly rural VDSA village economy of Tumkur district for 2012-13. The key sectors are ldentified for the village along with the economic role of MGNREGP through estimation of output, income and employment multipliers. The major transactions in the SAM were among the activity account to the commodity account, factor account and household account and not among sectors within the commodity account. The key sectors identified based on the column multiplier are 'Milk production and dairy cooperative' with potential multiplier value (Rs 172 lakhs) followed by 'Tamarind harvesting and processing'(Rs 158 lakhs), 'SHGs' sector (Rs 146 lakhs). The output multiplier of MGNREGP was the least being 1.08, with employment multiplier of 0.17 and household income multiplier of 0.20(totaling 1.45). Wages earned per worker (Rs 2370) formed a meager three per cent of total income, showing the poor role of MGNREGP, despite the fact that SAM multiplier matrix showed that 66 per cent of the sectors had inter action with MGNREGP.
