Although rich/middle class people can afford accidental insurance but it is nearly impossible for poor people with one earning member to buy such insurance due to high premium. This results in financial turmoil for the family members who are totally dependant on the earning member be it a major or minor accident. In such a scenario, apart from the rising medical expenses, their savings will continue to dip. Considering this Pradhan Mantri Suraksha Bima Yojana which was announced in the union budget 2015-2016 which is a part of social security scheme.
