How is PM Shram Yogi Mandhan Pension scheme any different from existing pension schemes, asks rural UP

With unorganised sector workers already eligible for the National Pension Scheme, and the APY, it seems unclear why PM-SYM has been launched, especially if it isn’t going to be bringing anything new, in terms of expanded coverage or increased amount, to the table. And if this is nothing more than an attempt at vote-bank politics, then rural Mau, at least, can see through it.
