Explain that in view of unemployment in the country, Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman recently announced Self-Reliant India Package 3.0.
Union Minister Santosh Gangwar said that self-reliant Bharat Rojgar Yojana will benefit employees as well as employers. The new government employees will get the benefit of this scheme of Modi government. Explain that the benefit of the scheme will be given to the employees who get a job in any EPFO-registered institute.
Apart from this, those employees who lost jobs during the Corona crisis will also get the benefit, who were not previously registered for PF. Under the scheme, a two-year subsidy will be given to cover the PF of new employees appointed on or after October 1, 2020. This scheme will remain in force till 30 June 2021. 58.5 lakh employees will get direct benefit from the scheme.
Through this scheme, we have moved from formal to informal economy. When our government came in 2014, six crore organized workers worked under the formal economy in the country. At present, the number of employees organized under the formal economy is around 100 million.
