94% of India’s working population work in the informal sector, most of them without any social protection. The objective of the project is to improve social protection for workers in the informal sector and their families, particularly those living below the poverty line. This targets in particular health insurance, pension provision and life and accident insurance. The accompanying Indo-German social policy dialogue clearly demonstrates that in addition to India learning from Germany, the IT-based administrative instruments developed in India may also be of interest to Germany’s social protection system.
