To reduce the impact of unemployment caused by COVID-19, India is planning to promote social welfare scheme, including the unemployment benefit. Recently, the Labour Ministry of India announced that people who seek benefits under the new social security code will be mandated to share their Aadhaar details.
What is the new social security code?
The “Social Security” under the Social Security Code (SS Code) refers to the social welfare protection measures that provide to employees, unorganized workers, gig workers, and platform workers as so to ensure access to health care and income security. It is a scheme to guarantee the rights of the groups include old age, unemployment, sickness, invalidity, work injury, maternity, or loss of a breadwinner.
Under the circumstance of COVID-19, when it comes to social welfare, unemployment allowance or benefit is one of the crucial protection measures. Unemployment benefit is one of the ways of assisting the workers losing their jobs under no fault of their own, in a bid to prevent unemployed individuals from falling into destitution and vagrancy.
What is Aadhaar in India?
Aadhaar is a 12 digit random number issued by the Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) on behalf of the Government of India. Every resident of India can get a specific Aadhaar ID number after satisfying the verification process laid down by the UIDAI and enroll for Aadhaar. Aadhaar letter received via India Post and e-Aadhaar downloaded from the UIDAI website are equally valid.
As the Aadhaar ID number is unique for each individual and will remain valid for a lifetime, thus it also serves as a proof of identity and address for residents of India, called an individual identification number. It enables residents easily access to various services provided by banking, mobile phone connections, and other government and non-government services in due course.
In addition, individuals can obtain an Aadhaar card, a biometric document that stores an individual's personal details in a government database. Nowadays, the Aadhaar card is fast becoming the government's base for public welfare and citizen services.
