Abstract: Selecting an appropriate research paradigm is one of the most challenging tasks for a researcher. This challenge becomes even more challenging in case a researcher decides to conduct qualitative research. Qualitative research is usually conducted to explore and understand the opinions of individuals or groups on a social problem. The data for qualitative research is usually collected by interaction among investigator and respondents and through different methods such as observations, interviews and document reviews. Considering the nature and process of qualitative research, it can be argued that constructivism, a theory that is based on observation and scientific study about how people learn, can be employed to decide research paradigm for qualitative research. In fact, understanding the importance and applicability of constructivism as a research paradigm in qualitative research becomes a righteous decision. Extending these observations, present paper describes the key aspects of constructivism and qualitative research, discusses the benefits of constructivism research paradigms, and details useful constructivist approaches for conducting qualitative educational researches. Keywords: Constructivist approaches, Constructivism, Qualitative research, Research paradigm.

Abstract: A new era has begun in the history of Social Security in India with the enactment of Employees Provident Funds and Miscellaneous Provisions Act, 1952, during the very First Five Years Plan period. The institutionalized protective approach to social security has also begun with this act for the people who, in majority, were in private sector. The income security in event of fall in wage due to old age, retirement and other types of cessation of employment was the prime motto of this legislation. Provident Fund is a form of retirement benefit other than gratuity. In the provident fund scheme both the employees and employers share the burden of security or protection. Prior to this legislation there were legislations like Provident Funds Act, 1925 with a restricted application, Coal Mines Provident Funds and Bonus Scheme 1948 limited to coal miners.

Abstract: The social security schemes in India cover only a small segment of the organized work- force, which may be defined as workers who are having a direct regular employer–employee relationship within an organization. The social security legislations in India derive their strength and spirit from the Directive Principles of the State Policy as contained in the Constitution of India. These provide for mandatory social security benefits either solely at the cost of the employers or on the basis of joint contribution of the employers and the employees. While protective entitlements accrue to the employees, the responsibilities for compliance largely rest with the employers Keywords: daily life, social security, protective entitlements
