The minister also said that 53.8% of the registrants are women compared to 46.12% men. The E-Shram portal is the first national database of non-unionized workers in the country, which represents 92% of the workforce.

Labor and Employment Minister Bhupender Yadav said on Saturday that 15.43 percent of people who registered on the E-Shram portal are between the ages of 18 and 40.

“About 6 months ago, work started for the registration of unorganized sector labor and during this period India has more than 27 million registrations of such workers on the portal E-Shram. And most importantly, workers in the unorganized sector have registered in over 400 professions,” Yadav said.

He added that the highest enrollments came from the agricultural sector.

The minister also said that 53.8% of the registrants are women compared to 46.12% men. The E-Shram portal is the first national database of non-unionized workers in the country, which represents 92% of the workforce.

He added that E-Shram cards will be linked to Aadhar cards. “The biggest benefit of this link is that workers in the unorganized sector will enjoy pensions, insurance, education, health and other benefits,” he added.

Yadav said the biggest change in the new labor code is to ensure workers are paid the minimum wage. He said that now 50 crores of workers are paid minimum wage. “All the incentives were implemented on the ground and reached everyone. It has boosted confidence in financial growth and development among the poor,” Yadav said.

Stressing the need to formalize the economy, Yadav mentioned that in the agricultural sector, through credit to farmers, 22-27% formalization is taking place.

“Under the leadership of Prime Minister Modi, the government is committed to empowering India’s organized workers,” Yadav reiterated.
