To say whether the concept of welfare state is being realized in India one should be clear in ones mind what is a welfare state. A welfare state is described as a System under which the state undertakes to protect the health and wellbeing of its citizens by means of grants, pension and other benefits(1). “A welfare state is one that guarantees broad services of economic protection that any citizen claims that he is longer able to provide himself(2). In a welfare state benefits which an individual receives are political rights not charity and there should be no occasion for apology or embarrassment when an individual applies for the benefits. The services provided by the state should be parallel in quality to those given to individuals who are able to draw on private sources. These are elements that by any meaningful way make up a welfare state.3 A Welfare state should make provisions to provide for health, education, employment, sanitation, good drinking water, Unemployment, removal of poverty, housing and other basic needs of people. To assess whether India has become a welfare state or has been endeavoring to become one, should know how much improvement government of India has brought about the wellbeing, health, standard of living, economic conditions, education, employment and environment of its people.
