Workers in the unorganized sector can participate in the Atal Pension Yojana to get a monthly guaranteed pension. This government initiative is open to every Indian citizen between the ages of 18 and 40.

Everyone needs a regular income in old age in order to appropriately manage their spending. Whenever you work as a salaried employee, you will be eligible for a pension once you retire, allowing you to manage your daily costs effectively even as you become older. Anyone who is not hired, however, was not eligible for the pension. The Central Government's Atal Pension Yojana aims to provide such persons with pension benefits and help them become financially self-sufficient in their later years. Through investing in this plan, any Indian citizen between the ages of 18 and 40 can benefit from a pension, particularly those working in the unorganized sector.

As per the Government of India's website, www.india.gov.in, the Atal Pension Yojana (APY) is a pension system for Indian residents focusing on unorganized sector employees. There at age of 60, participants would get a basic pension of Rs 1,000 to Rs 5000 per month, according to their contributions. The APY plan is open to any Indian citizen.
