For the first time in the history of India, a single window portal known as e-SHRAM has been created by the Ministry of Labour and Employment, Government of India, to register all the Unorganised Workers in the country to create a National Database of Unorganised Workers in cognizance of the problems and miseries faced by the estimated 38 crore unorganised workers in the country during the nationwide lockdown due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

e-SHRAM will help in delivering and improving the implementation efficiency of various social security and welfare schemes relating to unorganized workers being administered by the Ministry of Labour & Employment, while also seeking to integrate them and subsequently those run by other ministries as well. In emergency and national pandemic like situations, this database may be utilized to provide necessary assistance to the eligible unorganized workers

Every registered individual worker under e-SHRAM will be assigned a unique permanent 12 digit Universal Account Number valid across the country to avail any social security or welfare scheme and be covered with accidental insurance upto 2 Lakhs under PMSBY for the first year, thereafter, it can be continued with the consent of the beneficiary by paying a premium of Rs 12 per year.

Registration on the portal can be done by self through or by visiting the nearest CSC centre. Workers like migrant workers, agricultural workers, MGNREGA workers, ASHA workers, home based workers, anganwadi workers, street vendors, domestic workers, rickshaw pullers, taxi drivers, daily wage earners and other workers engaged in similar other occupations in the unorganised sector aged between 16-59 years having Aadhaar and bank account can get registered for free in the portal.

In order to monitor and fast-track the implementation of the e-SHRAM project in the State, the Government has constituted committees namely, the State Monitoring Committee headed by the Chief Secretary and District Implementing Committee headed by the respective Deputy Commissioners.

As per the National Statistics Office (NSO) survey report, Nagaland has an estimated 6.3 lakhs unorganised workers hence it is requested that all eligible unorganised workers should get registered on the portal so that no worker is denied of the targeted welfare schemes.

For any assistance or queries, workers can contact the Labour Department or the District Implementation Committee.
