Abstract

This paper looks into various aspects of the old age pension debate and related policies in India. In the analysis that follows, we address issues such as: the identity of the drivers of change; the political context in which many of these policies emerged; the intrinsic relationship between poverty and old age problems; state ideology; and the design and implementation of related policies.
