Drawbacks in this scheme
After the start of this, the first drawback seen in this scheme is that many bankers had done complaining about it. And the complaint is that this scheme will generate very low revenue. Even some bankers claimed that the amount they get is not enough to cover the service they provide.
ow because this scheme is a group insurance scheme so banks do not have any clear instructions about the maximum number of claims in a year. so they are not ready for these kinds of things. And these are some little problems in this scheme.

However, if these small problems can be sorted out then this scheme is a real blessing for our country’s lower and middle class. Because where there are many insurance policies which demand payments regularly.
And in this scheme, you have to pay a little amount which is suitable for the lower-income class to hold an insurance policy. This scheme is a golden chance for the poor to get an insurance policy. This will work for them as a shield and they will get an assurance in their life.
And these things make this scheme one of the main schemes run by the government of India for the welfare of the poor.
