Abstract:
Welfare Funds are set up to provide social security to workers in disadvantaged occupations, in the form of healthcare, housing and education of children. The Ministry of Labour and Employment, Government of India, runs welfare schemes for Beedi workers and certain categories of mine workers administered by the Welfare and Cess Commissioner's office in every state. These schemes are funded by collection proceeds of levied cess on sale of beedis and mined minerals, and provide a comprehensive package of benefits to the workers and their family members. This paper, part of a larger study in 2014, attempts to analyze these schemes on their comprehensiveness and efficiency through secondary data as well as primary field analysis, and find out to what extent they have been able to bring about a qualitative difference to the lives of their intended beneficiaries.
