India Conference on Unconditional Cash transfers


Autori Vari

The public debate on cash transfers in India has been polarized without sufficient empirical evidence from the ground. In order to provide credible evidence and to bring in the experiences of beneficiaries themselves, SEWA entered into a partnership with UNICEF to pilot an unconditional cash transfer, or basic income grant experiment in rural areas of Madhya Pradesh. The resultant initiative is an innovative pilot testing of a policy instrument that has the potential to overcome current design and implementation weaknesses of India’s vast social protection programmes and effectively address vulnerabilities faced by low-income Indians.
