What is the significance of these schemes?

One of the main objectives of the National Mission for Financial Inclusion was to expand the coverage of insurance and pension in order to provide the poor and marginalized sections of the society the much-needed financial security through affordable products.

These three Jan Suraksha schemes have brought the insurance and pension within the reach of the common man. For instance, 28.37 crore people have enrolled for accident cover since the launch of PMSBY. Similarly, More than 4 crore people have already subscribed to the APY scheme.

The number of people who have enrolled and benefitted from the above schemes over the last seven years is a testimony to their success. 

Hence, these low-cost insurance schemes and the guaranteed pension scheme are ensuring that financial security which was available to a select few earlier is now reaching the last person in the society.
