NAC member Aruna Roy justification for not ensuring that the entire unorganised sector (94% of our workforce) is assured of some form of income in their old age... not a dole but recognition of their lifelong contribution to the Indian economy,” said Ms. Roy.

I appreciate Aruna Roy for her proposal. What is missing in her statement is, from where the funds will come? Why people are not identifying the source of funds while coming up with novel schemes?
