The experts are of the view that as the enrolments progress on e-Shram portal towards the ultimate goal of enrolling all informal sector workers estimated at 38 crore in the country, the data would show sharp disparities in the society. e-Shram portal is aimed at building a comprehensive National Database of Unorganised Workers in the country. The aim of the portal is to boost the last-mile delivery of the welfare schemes for over 38 crore unorganised workers in the country.
