Summary

The Indian social security system only covers employees in the organized sector, which accounts for less than 10% of the country’s workforce. As the unorganized sector is continuously growing – and with every one in five workers in the informal sector living below the poverty line – the Government of India has launched several social security measures related to healthcare, pension and direct cash transfer schemes to people who do not have access to any formal scheme.
