Setting up of National Social Security Authority for unorganized Sector

National Advisory Council (NAC) has recommended a Minimum Social Security Package which includes life and disability cover, financial protection against ill health, maternity benefits and pension upon retirement for unorganized workers. NAC has also recommended single window architecture for implementing the Minimum Social Security Package which, inter-alia, includes setting up of National Social Security Authority at the Central level. The suggestion of NAC regarding setting up of a National Social Security Authority to oversee plan implementation is under consideration of the Government.
