While social security is considered a basic right in developed countries, in India it is considered a luxury. The lack of a proper social security system in India spells disaster particularly for the most vulnerable sections of society including the poor and the disabled who have no financial security in case of illnesses, family deaths, or other unexpected events. Neither the State nor the civil sector has come up with an appropriate social security model that can replace it as a source of protection against the eventualities of the future. What social security schemes and instruments exist are income-linked and savings- based and hence designed for those with investable surplus. While social security is nothing new, OASiS is making it available for the first time to India?s most impoverished communities. Our innovative system capitalizes on the collective bargaining power of communities, and therefore provides financial security for individuals without the financial burdens that traditional social security models require (such as taxes or spending cuts). Indian communities negotiate agreements with essential service providers whereby in exchange for a large and regular client base vendors/providers offer a discount on their goods and services. The amount discounted feeds into a savings account and pays for premia on health and life insurance and other safety nets. The model thus enables the poor to utilize one of their greatest assets: the collective strength of community; and provides them with a (financially) painless mechanism to participate actively in protecting themselves against eventualities. Through regular, large-volume expenditures at the community level the Indian poor can grow a social security system that is sustainable, replicable, & all-inclusive. Our model is a complete social security system with social security numbers, recording, collecting, & distribution mechanisms for unemployment allowance, & retirement benefits linked with living standards.
