The e-Shram portal of the Ministry of Labour and Employment,
which is meant to register workers in the unorganised sector and
help them access social security benefits, is being integrated with
the One Nation One Ration Card scheme, according to Bhupender
Yadav, Minister for Labour and Employment.
“We are in the process of integration of e-Shram with One Nation
One Ration Card based on the location data of monthly food grain
collection from PDS shops. It is envisaged that a comparison of the
location data with permanent address data on e-Shram shall help
identify migrant workers within e-Shram,” Yadav said.
He was speaking at an IE THINC Migration webinar on migrant
workers and the promise of e-Shram. The webinar was part of a
series on migration and there have been seven editions in the
“The main issue is to ensure that the location of the worker is
not a hindrance to accessing social security benefits… E-Shram
shall share all relevant data with the state governments in a
dynamic way,” he said.
