Their employment relationship, in law or practice, is not subject to:  National labour legislation  Income taxation  Social protection or  Entitlement to certain employment benefits, e.g. paid annual leave, sick leave, etc More than 90% of India’s workforce belongs to the informal sector and accounts for 50% of the national product

  6. 6. PROPOSED SOLUTIONS… 1.Solution for hawkers Separate hawker’s market which would provide cleaner and organized space for commerce and also provide security for their shops. Government should build proper shops (on roadside) which would provide them with secured shops, which in turn would keep the city clean and help in land management.

  8. 8. DISTRICT KARYODAYA JAN ABHIYAN.. *Central government should launch a scheme in the interest of the informal sector under which government can give contract to private company which would be in-charge of creating departments in every district for each state which would keep a record of all the informal workers in that area CENTRAL GOVERNMENT STATE PRIVATE COMPANY
  9. 9. …CONTINUED All the informal sector workers would have to fill up a form giving details about their family members and background, business and annual income along with their personal details .Each worker would be provided an *enrollment number which would:-  help their family to receive compensations( in case of medical emergency).  help them receive funds provided by the government.(as mentioned in the **Acts for informal sector).  help them get business loans at low interest rate. * and the registrations would be computerized **Indira Gandhi National Old Age Pension Scheme.
  10. 10. IMPACT OF THE SOLUTION SCALABILITY SUSTAINABILITY MEASUREMENT From the number of enrollment forms the government can know the actual number of informal sector population to be worked upon. During the initial implementation stages government can conduct survey on monthly basis and later on yearly basis to take the feedback from the population whether they are being benefited from the plan. Along with the survey government can ask private bodies to submit an report on yearly basis.
  11. 11. MERIT OF THE SOLUTION… Many efforts and legislations have been laid down by the government but unfortunately are very far from the reach of the informal sector:  The Unorganized Sector Social Security Act (2008)  National Policy on Street Vendors (2009) The reason mainly being corruption. Corruption would be minimized if government gives contract to private companies and people can get benefits directly.
  12. 12. CHALLENGES and SOLUTIONS.. CHALLENGES Legal:-People can show false data to take benefit of the scheme SOLUTIONS Submission of 1% of the annual income would be mandatory to get the benefits of the scheme(which could act as source of funding also) Promotion of scheme on a large scale Social :- Mass unawareness about the scheme
