Union labour minister Bhupender Yadav announced on Tuesday that the Centre will launch the e-SHRAM portal on August 26 (Thursday). The portal will maintain a database of workers in the country’s unorganised sector. The workers will be able to register themselves on the portal shortly after its launch tomorrow, according to Yadav.

On Tuesday, the labour minister unveiled the logo of the E-SHRAM portal and said it will be the national database of “our nation builders, our Shram Yogis,” adding, that the portal will take welfare schemes to their doorstep.


“Targeted delivery and last mile delivery, has been a major focus of the schemes of government of India under the leadership of Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi and the National Database of Unorganised workers(E-Shram portal) is another key step towards that,” the minister said.

Here is all you need to know about the portal:

> Workers will be provided with an e-SHRAM card which will have a 12 digit unique number. The objective behind the move is the integration of Centre’s social security schemes.
