What is the e-Shram portal?

The government aims to register 38 crore unorganized workers, such as construction labourers, migrant workforce, street vendors and domestic workers, among others. The workers will be issued an e-Shram card containing a 12 digit unique number, which, will help in including them in social security schemes, officials said.

How will the registration for workers happen on the portal?

The registration of workers on the portal will be coordinated by the Labour Ministry, state governments, trade unions and CSCs. Awareness campaigns would be planned across the country to enable nationwide registration of workers.

In the wake of the the launch of the portal, workers from the unorganized sector can begin their registration from the same day. A national toll free number — 14434 — will also be launched to assist and address the queries of workers seeking registration on the portal.

A worker can register on the portal using his/her Aadhaar card number and bank account details besides filling other necessary details like date of birth, home town, mobile number and social category.
