Aam Aadmi Bima Yojana is a Social Security Scheme which had been initiated as well as administered by the Indian Government for mostly the rural landless households. It was launched as recently as October 2, 2007. This scheme provides coverage to the head of the family or one earning member in the family. The premium of Rs.200/- per person per annum is shared equally by the Central Government and the State Government, so as to ensure that the insured person has to pay no premium. The member to be covered should be aged between 18 and 59 years. The Ministry of Finance, under the Government of India made an approval for the merger of Social Security Schemes viz., Aam Aadmi Bima Yojana (AABY) and Janashree Bima Yojana (JBY). The merged scheme was hence renamed “Aam Aadmi Bima Yojana” and has come into effect from January 1, 2013.
