ANSWER
MINISTER OF STATE FOR LABOUR AND EMPLOYMENT 

(SHRI RAMESWAR TELI)

(a) : The State/UT-wise details of beneficiaries enrolled under Pradhan Mantri Shram Yogi Maan-dhan (PM-SYM) pension scheme are at Annexure.

(b) : PM-SYM is a voluntary scheme. Moreover, the outbreak of the covid-19 pandemic, adversely affected lives of unorganised workers resulting in low fresh enrolments under PM-SYM scheme during this period.

(c) to (e): Pradhan Mantri Shram Yogi Maan-dhan (PM-SYM) pension scheme was launched to provide old age protection to the workers of unorganised sectors in the form of monthly minimum assured pension of Rs.3,000/- after attaining the age of 60 years. As on 11.07.2022, more than 48.19 lakhs unorganised workers have been enrolled under the scheme. The Government has taken several measures to popularize and bring awareness among the targeted beneficiaries about the PM-SYM pension scheme and increase the enrolments. The State(s)/UT(s) were granted Rs 11.73 cr. in 2019-20 for undertaking IEC activities. Apart from this, to create the awareness, SMSs have been sent to eligible beneficiaries registered under e-SHRAM falling in the age group of 18- 40 years to encourage them to also enroll under PM- SYM scheme. Furthermore, extensive social media campaigns have been launched and Pension Saptah was celebrated from 7th to 13th March, 2022 across the country, with an objective to popularize the scheme among the workers, through State(s)/UT(s) and CSC-SPV machinery. At present, there is no proposal for revision of pension amount under the scheme.
