Abstract: [The concept of welfare state is thought to be of later origin and that earlier states were police states. In a welfare state duty of Government is not only limited to the maintenance of law and order in the society but to work for the overall development o f people. Though in ancient India the types of government was monarchy, yet the concept of welfare state was present at that time. In this paper an attempt has been made to trace the idea of welfare state in the Arthaśāstra of Kauṭilya and Yājñavalkyasmṛti which are two important treatises relating to polity of ancient India.]
