The vision of the Social Security platform is to create one single interface for beneficiaries and their providers to deliver public benefits in a rational, objective, convenient and targeted way to those in need. The current climate in India with differentiated banking, the Jan Dhan-Aadhaar Mobile trinity and credible databases was felt to be conducive for launch of a comprehensive platform for social security. Once implemented, this can lead to transformative change in welfare benefits delivery.
The aim of this workshop was to bring together various stakeholders on a common platform to take the concept forward. Mr. Jayant Sinha, Minister of State (Finance), Govt. of India, presided over the concluding session.
