He said that Pradhan Mantri Shram Yogi Maan-dhan Yojana would entitle an individual to a voluntary and contributory pension scheme, under which the subscriber would receive a minimum assured pension of Rs 3,000 per month after attaining the age of 60 years.

Reiterating his government�s commitment to save the tea garden workers from the onslaught of social evils, Sonowal said the government has asked the Labour Welfare Officers to carry out extensive awareness programmes in the tea garden areas so that workers can be put away from the menace of drinking sulai (a local intoxicating drink) and various other social evils.
