Social Security Programme

Many labourers of the Unorganized Sector living within the Bolpur Manab Jamin project areas are unaware of the government schemes designed to support them. Bolpur Manab Jamin provides the link between these workers and the government, spreading awareness of the programmes and providing the support for individuals to enroll in them.

Bolpur Manab Jamin currently links workers with two such schemes—the Provident Fund for Unorganized Workers (SASPFUW) and the West Bengal Building and Other Construction Workers Welfare Scheme. Supporting general labourers and construction workers, respectively, these schemes collect Rs. 20 from subscribers each month and begin providing social security benefits when the programme member reaches the age of sixty.
