Donate a Pension Scheme:
The ‘donate a pension’ scheme was launched by the Union Labour and Employment Ministry in 2019.
It allows any citizen to pay the premium amount on behalf of an unorganized worker under the Pradhan Mantri Shram Yogi Maan-Dhan Scheme.
The scheme allows unorganised sector workers between the age of 18 and 40, who earn up to ₹15,000 a month, to enrol by paying a premium amount between ₹55 and ₹200, depending on the age, that would be matched by the government.
The “Donate a pension” scheme allows a citizen to “donate the premium contribution of their immediate support staff such as domestic workers, drivers, helpers, care givers, nurses, in their household or establishment.”
