E-Shram portal registers Over 1 crore unorganised workers since its launch

New Delhi:  The government on Sunday said over 1 crore unorganised workers have registered on e-shram portal since its launch on august 26. The drive to facilitate registration of unorganized workers on E-Shram portal has registered 1,03,12,095 workers. Of these, around 43 per cent are female and 57 per cent are male.

The E-Shram portal is generating database of workers from different sectors like construction, apparel manufacturing, fishing, gig and platform work, street vending, domestic work, agriculture and allied, and transport sector. An overwhelming proportion of migrant workers are engaged in these sectors of work.

According to the latest data, Bihar, Odisha, Uttar Pradesh, and West Bengal are at the forefront of this initiative with the highest number of registrations. However, putting this number into perspective must be with caution as smaller states and Union Territories understandably have lesser number of registered workforce.

As per the Economic Survey 2019-20, there are an estimated 38 crore unorganised workers in the country, which would be targeted to register on this portal. These migrant workers also can now take the benefits of various social security and employment-based schemes through registration at the e-Shram portal.
