This research revolves around the state of social security provisions for labourers in the textile industry of Tiruppur, Tamil Nadu. Textile labourers face unique challenges such as job insecurity, health risks, and fluctuating economic conditions. Effective social security measures can mitigate these challenges by providing stable income during unemployment, access to healthcare services, and retirement benefits. The main stream focus of the study is on the effectiveness and accessibility of existing social security schemes such as healthcare, pension, and insurance. Through qualitative methods such as interviews and surveys with workers and employers, the study explores the gaps between policy intentions and implementation realities. The findings of the study reveal significant challenges including inadequate coverage, administrative barriers, and disparities in benefits distribution. The study then goes on to recommend suggestions to improve policy implementation and benefit distribution. Lastly, it concludes with recommendations for policy improvements to enhance the social security framework for textile labourers in Tiruppur, aiming to foster greater equity and welfare in the industry.
