The Ministry of Labour & Employment has developed a unified Web Portal 'Shram Suvidha', catering to four major organisations under its aegis: Office of Chief Labour Commissioner (Central); Directorate General of Mines Safety; Employees' Provident Fund Organization; and Employees' State Insurance Corporation.
The portal's four main features are:
- Unique Labour Identification Number (LIN) allotted to Units facilitating online registration.
- Filing of self-certified, simplified Single Online Return by industry. Units will only file a single consolidated Online Return, instead of separate Returns. Amendments to 10 Rules already undertaken.
- Transparent Labour Inspection Scheme via computerized system as per risk-based criteria and uploading of Inspection Reports within 72 hours by Labour Inspectors.
