Title Review

A dozen of theoretical and empirical studies, contributed by eminent social scientists from different Indian Universities have been compiled in the present edited volume. The focus of the book is on the problem, socio-economic conditions, and social security of workers in India’s informal sector. It begins with an assessment of the need for social security in the informal sector and examined critically the implementation and management of social security schemes in India. Also it is tried to find out whether there is a nexus between poverty, unorganized sector employment and state’s apathy towards the workers. This is followed by a set of empirical case studies dealing with plight and social security of workers engaged in different activities of the informal sector. These studies showcase the ground realities related to the subject in the specific context of different states and regions of India.
