Digital records on migration of workers
The Union Government has launched a National Migration Support Portal ‘ShramShakti’. It would effectively assist in the smooth formulation of state and national level programs for migrant workers.
The diverse data that will be recorded via ‘Shram Shakti’ include demographic profile, livelihood options, skill mapping, and migration pattern. Shram Shakti will be able to effectively address the data gap and empower migrant workers who generally migrate in search of employment and income generation.
It may also support the government for linking the migrant population with the existing Welfare Scheme- under Atma Nirbhar Bharat. This is a welcome move towards maintaining digital migration of workers and offers them a national platform for skill training and employment opportunities.
