The 4th Employment Working Group (EWG) Meeting under India’s G20 Presidency began in the city of Indore, Madhya Pradesh yesterday.


The delegates from Co-Chair countries, namely Indonesia and Brazil also made statements in the opening session and expressed their optimism on competing the work through fruitful discussions.

India made a presentation on e-Shram, the world’s largest database of unorganised workers and National Career Service (NCS) Portal. The presentation on e-shram and NCS portals will also be shared with the international delegates who expressed interest and curiosity on India’s achievement on these fronts.

The eShram portal will be used for enrollment, registration, collection and identification of the required data of all the unorganised workers. Portal will provide the facility to register workers by Self registration as per their convenience.

eSHRAM is to create a centralised database of Unorganized Workers which will help to implement the social security services to them and share their information with various stakeholders for delivering the welfare schemes.

According to the recent survey by Quess Corp, 80% of the informal employees expect their employers to provide them with the security of ESI and other medical benefits; the expectation of ESI is even higher for the younger, informal employees (83% - 18 to 25 years and 81% - 26 to 35 years).
