Social security is one of the basic human rights of people and it is essential for the well-being of society. It has a significant impact on the labour market. Social security has also strongly suggested contributing to economic growth by raising labour productivity and enhancing social stability. It is an indispensable part of government social policy and an important tool to prevent and alleviate poverty.
Social Security fund are invested in stock market for maximum return at the time of withdrawal. EPFO has started investing 5% of incremental corpus through Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs) last year and could not demonstrate any encouraging results. During this current fiscal year, EPFO is expected to receive an incremental deposit of Rs. 1.15 Lakh Crore. The Government has not provided any guarantee for such investments in the stock market as investment in such instruments are subject to market movements. Some of the trade unions have expressed their reservations over the decision to invest in equity as they are concerned about the risk associated with the investments in stock market
