The Government of WestBengal has launched a number of Social Security Schemes for the workers of the unorganized sector aimed at providing these workers with a degree of income security when faced with the contingencies of old age, survivorship, incapacity, disability, bringing up children, gender disparity, curative or preventive medical care, and empowerment. The Schemes are:-
- State Assisted Scheme of Provident Fund for Unorganized Workers, (SASPFUW)
- West Bengal Unorganised Sector Workers’ Health Security Scheme, (WBUSWHSS)
- Social Security Scheme for Construction Workers, (BOCWA)
- West Bengal Transport Workers Social Security Scheme, (WBTWSSS)
- West Bengal Bidi Workers’ Welfare Scheme, (WBBWWS)
However, it is seen that the benefits and the scale of benefits varied considerably in all these schemes. This leads to
overlap and inconsistencies regarding eligibility and benefits. The process to register and avail of benefits under these schemes was also getting difficult for the beneficiaries who are mostly illiterate or their literacy level is too low to comprehend such diversities.
A need was thus felt to integrate and converge common benefits of all the above schemes into a single and more
comprehensive scheme to provide uniform benefits to each and every unorganized worker registered herein for the ease of better understanding, monitoring, and effective implementation.
Accordingly, the Governor is pleased to introduce a new and consolidated social security scheme for the unorganized workers namely, SAMAJIK SURAKSHA YOJANA, 2017.
