So, what is universal basic income?

Jan 28, 2019 19:30 IST

Congress President Rahul Gandhi has promised universal basic income to the poor if the party is voted to power in 2019. So, what exactly is a universal basic income? According to the advocacy group Basic Income Earth Network, it is a periodic cash payment unconditionally delivered to all citizens on an individual basis without a requirement to work or to demonstrate willingness-to-work. The purpose of the universal basic income is to prevent or reduce poverty and increase equality among citizens.
