Welfare State

Welfare state is a form of government where the state is committed to promoting economic and social well-being of every citizen irrespective of their political affiliation or views.

It is based on the principle of social justice, equitable resource distribution and the state’s responsibility to ensure minimum standards of living for the citizens.

The concept of public service is important in maintaining the trust of the people in the social contract that exist between the government and the citizen. India is a welfare state and this is reflected in the preamble as well as directive principles of state policies.
