Rajasthan Budget: Gehlot announces Rs 200-crore welfare fund, measures to protect gig workers

Enactment of Gig Workers Welfare Act with 200 crores in the welfare bag?

Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot on Friday announced the enactment of the Gig Workers Welfare Act, the establishment of a board, and a welfare fund of Rs 200 crore in his government’s Budget for 2023-24.

He said gig workers work with companies like Ola, Uber, Swiggy, Zomato, Amazon, and others, and their numbers are increasing.

The scope of the gig economy is increasing and the number of gig workers has increased to 3-4 lakh in the state, Gehlot said, adding that till now, there was no arrangement of social security for them.

“To protect them from harassment, I propose to bring the Gig Workers Welfare Act, under which, along with the formation of the Gig Workers Welfare Board, a Gig Workers Welfare Fund will be established with Rs 200 crore,” the chief minister said in his Budget speech.


A highlight of 2022 was the release of a report on the gig and platform economy by India’s NITI Aayog. The report aimed to understand the economic and job creation potential of the gig and platform economy, estimate its size and identify its demand across various industries, and examine the opportunities and challenges it offered workers. The report talks of the  rapidly burgeoning gig workforce that is ushering in a new economic revolution globally with India as the new frontier of this revolution” 

Urban Company gets a top score on Fairwork India Ratings 2022

The recently released Fairwork India Ratings 2022 found that Ola, Uber, and Dunzo were the worst performers on the gig workers’ index

Urban Company topped the annual Fairwork India Ratings 2022 by scoring 7 on a scale of 10, which measures the work conditions of gig workers at respective companies. On the other hand, companies like Uber, Pharmeasy, Ola, Dunzo, and Amazon Flex scored zero points.

The report scores platforms against five principles: Fair pay, fair conditions, fair contracts, fair management, and fair representation. 

To arrive at these rankings, Fairwork conducted a combination of desk research and worker interviews in Bangalore, Delhi, and Kochi, and where possible, used evidence provided by the platforms.

The Fairwork India Ratings 2022 scored 12 platforms, including Amazon Flex, BigBasket, Dunzo, Flipkart, Ola, PharmEasy, Porter, Swiggy, Uber, Urban Company, Zepto, and Zomato. 

Defining flexibility

“The promise of the flexibility of the digital platform raises as many questions about livelihoods as it offers opportunities. It is hoped that the Fairwork report provides the basis for an interpretation of flexibility that allows for not merely the adaptability that platforms seek, but also the income and social security that workers lack”, said the researchers.

Compared to 2021, last year’s top scorer, Flipkart, dropped to third position as its score fell by 2 points (5/10) this year. Whereas, BigBasket has gained two points to score 6/10 in 2022. Similarly, Swiggy and Zomato have also one point each to score 5 and 4 respectively.

Defining flexibility


The Indian Federation of App-Based Transport workers (IFAT) hailed the Gehlot government’s announcement of a welfare board for gig workers.

“IFAT believes that this is a monumental moment not only for gig workers but for entire informal sector workers and industries both. These efforts will go a long way in solving many unanswered and complex questions of the informal economy where over 94%/50 Crores of India’s total workforce are employed,” the union said in a statement.

It also urged the Centre to set up the National Gig Workers’ Board.

 The Centre had in 2020 formulated the Code on Social Security, which envisages the framing of suitable social security schemes for gig workers and platform workers on matters relating to life and disability cover, accident insurance, health and maternity benefits, old age protection, etc.
However, these provisions under the Code have not come into force yet.

Concerns over working conditions

Concerns have been raised over the working conditions of gig workers as their participation in the labour force grows..
