This study is destined to analyse and discuss the awareness about social protection programmes of the government among the women working in unorganized sector of a town Khurja, district Bulandshahr, Uttar Pradesh.
Development all alone cannot be a source of peace and prosperity until it is followed by social justice and equity. Both state and central governments have implemented a number of social welfare programmes for the upliftment of the marginalized people. Generally, no information is available on effectiveness of these programmes among the underprivileged class of people.
Efficiency and effectiveness of key welfare programmes in India need to be substantially improved. Particular attention needs to be paid to female participation and their access to these welfare programmes. Altering population demographics have placed various challenges before us, among which increasing pressure of social welfare of citizens is one. Remarkable disparities regarding social security remain among regions, between rural and urban areas, between men and women. On an average country spend 12.8% of their GDP on social security programmes. Currently only 47% of the global population is effectively covered with social security net. Social protection is a tool of social transformation, which creates wide ranging social and economic benefits to the society.
