From insurance to retirement - How government schemes can help

It was not the first time that we were lending money to our domestic help but that evening is etched in my memory.

After lending the money, I checked her awareness on government insurance programs she could avail. To my surprise, she had no clue. I went through all affordable options and created a list of plans that every domestic help should have.
