50

Explanation:
The Centre has decided to provide additional 50 days of work in drought-hit areas under the Mahatma Gandhi National Rural Employment Guarantee Act (MGNREGA) scheme, to provide relief to farmers in view of deficit monsoon in various parts of the country. The decision was taken after the monsoon deficit reached  16 per cent across the country, which could affect Kharif crops and rural income.
