In this paper an endeavour is being rendered to get to the job of welfare policies provided by the Government of Kerala to the taxi drivers. This study was conducted in Southern Kerala. The method of analysis used in this research is descriptive type. The result of the study showed that none of the taxi drivers are satisfied with the Government policies. According to them, Government is providing very little to no such provisions which will help with their profession. They're being forced to run and maintain their work with most of their own money and this is causing long time damage to their present and future lifetime. With the increasing prices of essentials in our country, it seems impossible for them to cope up with the growing economy unless there are some initiatives being taken up by the Government. Like every profession, taxi drivers also need security and provisions to carry forward their work. And as per the minimum charge’s setup by the Government, taxi drivers can't simply increase it and even if they do, it'll make them lose customers. This will result in more damages to their soul known profession.
