Insurance scheme for the poor, Rashtriya Swasthya Bima Yojana (RSBY) : Govt
The Union Cabinet will consider including the country's four million-plus domestic workers into its flagship insurance scheme for the poor, rashtriya swasthya bima yojana (RSBY), after adding street vendors to the eligible categories last week.

Rickshaw pullers, taxi drivers, auto drivers and sanitary workers are next in queue, but it would take a while before these proposals are formalised, a government official has said.

The RSBY has, so far, extended free health care up to Rs 30,000 annually to below poverty line, or BPL, families. And starting with street vendors and now domestic workers, the government has plans of bringing all vulnerable sections of the society under the scheme gradually

A report on domestic workers prepared by the task force set up by the labour ministry points out that most laws do not recognise domestic work as real work, and domestic workers as real workers.

Because of this, the existing labour legislations fail to include them in the categories of workers and some even specifically exclude them from labour legislations.

In fact, a study conducted by the International Labour Organisation (ILO) in 65 countries revealed that only 19 of them have brought in laws or regulations specifically concerning domestic work.

Getting the scheme approved by defining domestic workers and approving funding is just one step towards providing them health security, the labour ministry official admitted, adding that it was now the responsibility of state governments to identify them and get them registered.

The RSBY entails cashless treatment up to Rs 30,000 annually to a family of five at empanelled government and private hospitals through smart cards.

The domestic workers, like BPL families, will not have to contribute at all to the insurance scheme except for Rs 30 as registration charges. The Centre will take care of three-fourth of the funds requirement, while states will have to foot the rest.
