Massive Promotion on PMJJBY & PMSBY – The Social Security Schemes by Govt. of India

Government of India is doing a massive promotion on Pradhan Mantri Jeevan Jyoti Bima Yojana (PMJJBY) & Pradhan Mantri Suraksha Bima Yojana (PMSBY). On the eve of launching these social security schemes, govt. is promoting both the schemes in most of the major newspapers, both in print & electronic versions.

Both of these schemes provides an insurance cover of Rs. 2 lakhs in a very low premium amount. Below is the ad which was put in today’s newspapers.
