Does the government of India pay any form of benefit to the unemployed?

If not, does the federal government provide free/subsidised education for those who wish to improve their knowledge/skills and, therefore, their chances of finding employment?

In Australia, a single unemployed person receives a payment of approxiamately A$430, a fortnight, in addition to heavily subsidised medical care.

There is currently no limit on the time for which such a payment can be made.

The unemployed are actively encouraged to undertake free/subsidised training to assist them find employment

India isin't like that, it is a majority agrarian, population, which had ZERO history of mercantile activity or cosmopolitanism, for a long, long time.

So, the Socialist State we had after independence, was more into reducing cost of living, and focusing on subsidy drives. Like in Socialist India......we were staring at a Sub Saharan Africa like ...more
