  Registration for PM Shram Yogi Mandhan Yojana continued to decline, with only 15,283 people joining from April to July.



People's interest in the Prime Minister's Labor Yogi Mandhan (PMSYM), launched by the central government for unorganized sector workers, is now waning. During the first 4 months of the financial year 2021-22 i.e. April to July, only 15,283 people have joined the scheme i.e. only 3,821 workers per month. In the first 24 days of August, there were only 1,223 new registrations, according to figures released by the Ministry of Labor and Employment.


Less than half of the new registrations were made compared to last year

In the year 2019-20, there were 4,361 registrations per day in this scheme which has come down to 356 in 2020-21. Now if we talk about the year 2021-22, till August 24, a total of 16,506 people have joined it. That means only 113 people every day. According to public figures on the ministry's website, PMSYM registered an average of 10,843 per month in the financial year 2020-21 and 115,000 in 2019-20.


The target was to involve 100 million people in 5 years

From the time the scheme was launched on 15 February 2019 to 24 August, only 45.1 people joined it. The government had set a target of 100 million people in 5 years, but so far not even 5% has been achieved.


Why are people getting disillusioned?

According to experts, workers have to invest 10 years in this scheme. Then the workers get a pension of Rs 3,000 per month when they turn 60 years old. Suppose a worker registers at the age of 40, then he will start getting pension after 20 years i.e. in 2041. 3 thousand rupees is a very low amount in 2041 considering the rising inflation.


What is the plan?

Under this scheme, unorganized sector workers get a pension of Rs. 3000 after the age of 60 years. The government contributes as much as the beneficiaries make every month under the scheme. That is, if the workers' contribution is Rs 100, the government will also add Rs 100.


The scheme is for laborers working in the unorganized sector. These include housemaids, lorry drivers, drivers, plumbers, tailors, mid-day meal workers, rickshaw drivers, construction workers, waste weavers, beedi makers, handlooms, agricultural workers, cobblers, laundresses and leather workers.
