What is Aatmanirbhar Bharat Rozgar Yojana (ABRY)?

The scheme is designed to stimulate the creation of new employment opportunities by extending financial support to employers of enterprises registered with the Employees’ Provident Fund Organization (EPFO).

The essence of the scheme lies in encouraging the employment of unemployed individuals, including those who lost their jobs due to Covid-19, by covering employee and employer contributions (24% of wages) for enterprises with up to 1,000 employees. For enterprises with over 1,000 employees, only employee EPF contributions (12% of wages) are covered in respect of new employees.

In August 2023, the government announced that ABRY has exceeded its initial employment generation goals, demonstrating its success in fostering job creation and recovery during the Covid-19 pandemic.
