Developed by the Ministry of Labour and Employment, the e-Shram portal is built to create a national database of unorganised workers, which is seeded with an individual's Aadhaar. The data includes details of name, occupation, address, educational qualification, skill types and family details etc. for understanding their employability and extending the benefits of the social security schemes to them. It is the first-ever national database of unorganised workers including migrant workers, construction workers, gig and platform workers, etc.
