As per the Press Release dated 24.04.2023, a feature of capturing family details of migrant workers has been added to the eShram portal. This feature can help in providing child education and women-centric schemes to the migrant workers who have migrated with family. Further, a new feature on sharing data of construction workers registering on eShram with the concerned Building and Other Construction Workers’ (BOCW) Welfare Board, has been added to ensure registration of construction workers with the respective BOCW board and access to the schemes meant for them.   

The Union Minister also formally launched Data Sharing Portal (DSP) for sharing of eShram data with the State/ UT Governments. Data Sharing Portal will allow sharing of eShram beneficiaries’ data with the respective States and Union Territories in a secure manner for targeted implementation of social security/welfare schemes for the unorganised workers registered on eShram. Recently, Ministry initiated mapping of different schemes data with eShram data to identify the eShram registrants who have not yet received the benefits of these schemes. This data is also being shared with States/UTs based on which, States/UTs can identify unorganised workers who have not yet received the benefit of the social welfare/security schemes and provide schemes’ benefit to them, on priority. 

As on 21st April 2023, over 28.87 crore unorganised workers have registered on the eShram portal.
