About

India is a rapidly growing economy, yet a significant number of the population suffers due to a lack of several resources at their disposal. Social security is one of the major non-traditional security issues India faces more than ever before. The recent occurrence of the coronavirus pandemic has brought the issue of social security in India to the forefront. Large scale movement of migrant workers from the various cities of India was a great lesson for all the stakeholders. It made people realise the need for social security for all members of society, and thus, there needs to be a great deal of discussion on this issue at all levels. According to the latest report (World Social Protection Report 2020-22: Regional companion report for Asia and the Pacific) on social protection by the International Labour Organisation (ILO), only 24.4% of Indians, even fewer than Bangladesh (28.4%), are under any sort of social protection benefit.

The proportion of unorganised workers in India is as large as 90%, yet, they have not been provided social security benefits. According to the National Commission for Enterprises in Unorganised Sector, 73% of the unorganised workers were poor, and this group of unorganised workers includes mainly Dalits, Adivasis, OBCs and Muslims. The proportion of unorganised workers in India is about 90%, and their contribution to national wealth is significant. Yet, they do not have sufficient and reliable access to social security benefits such as insurance (health, life and disability), pensions, maternity benefits and unemployment allowance, leading to deepening poverty and perpetuating vulnerability among them. Social security is, therefore, important to protect workers and the poor from falling into poverty. Important social security needs of the unorganised workers are health insurance, old age pension and employment. 

Our focus needs to be re-directed at how the new government schemes for the disadvantaged sections of society are actually helping them. Join us in this vital initiative to address the social security issues being faced by the country in recent times, equipping ourselves with the knowledge, strategies, and tools necessary to forge a sustainable and resilient future for the entire country.
