Social security and the story of two Budgets

  • Published
    18th Feb, 2023


In sharp contrast to the Union Budget 2023-24, the Rajasthan Budget is an example of upholding the rights of the vulnerable through implementation of various laws.

Diminishing Social Security in Union Budget:

  • In the 2023 Budget, severe cuts in various social security and welfare schemes such as food security and the MGNREGA, have undermined the already precarious lives of large numbers of poor people in India.
  • Since 2007, social security pensions being given by the central government under the National Social Assistance Programme (NSAP), have remained frozen at an appallingly low sum of ?200 for the elderly and ?300 per month for widows and persons with disabilities.
  • In addition, only those who appear on the obsolete and discredited Below Poverty Line (BPL) lists prepared as in Census 2001 are given pensions.
