India's economic growth has been heavily reliant on agriculture for many years, and this trend continues today. India's agricultural industry, historically pivotal to its economy, faces numerous challenges, including low productivity and inadequate infrastructure. This paper provides a comprehensive review of social security schemes in India, focusing on their implementation and impact within the agricultural sector. In response, the government has introduced initiatives such as the Pradhan Mantri Fasal Bhima Yojana (PMFBY) and Pradhan Mantri Krishi Sinchai Yojana (PMKSY) to support farmers and rural communities. Through a mixed-methods approach drawing from literature reviews and empirical data, this study evaluates the efficacy of these schemes in addressing the needs of beneficiaries. It highlights the importance of ongoing policy evaluation and stakeholder engagement in ensuring the equitable distribution of social welfare benefits. Ultimately, this review underscores the crucial role of social security schemes in advancing agricultural development and improving the livelihoods of farmers in India.

Keywords: Agricultural Insurance, Micro Irrigation, Social Security schemes.
