Patriotic hues of Indians are visible on 15th August as the Tricolour is hoisted at Red Fort and citizens feel proud of their country by holding the national flag in their hands. This month is special for every Indian as it reminds us of our struggle and sacrifice for freedom. A number of cultural and social activities take place in August to commemorate the Independence Day.

Raksha Bandhan or Rakhi is also commencing this month which celebrates the sacred bond of love shared between brothers and sisters. Onam and Parsi New year's Day will also be observed in August.

A large portion of India's population had been living without any kind of health, accidental, or life insurance for so long. It was estimated that the unorganised sector workers, which constitute 88% of the total labour force of 47.29 crore, as per the 66th Round of NSSO Survey of 2011-12, do not have any formal pension provision.

The Budget 2015-16 highlighted this issue and proposed three social security schemes, Pradhan Mantri Suraksha BimaYojna, Atal PensionYojana and Pradhan Mantri Jeevan Jyoti Bima Yojana. These three schemes are based on Jan Dhan Yojana platform to protect citizens at the time of illness, accidents or old age.
