E-SHRAM

FOR MAINS

ISSUES WITH E SHRAM

  • Tedious Process due gigantic nature of registering each worker
  • Data Security issues
  • By excluding workers covered by EPF and ESI, lakhs of contract and fixed-term contract workers will be excluded from the universe of UW. 
  • Gig workers are included by the Labour ministry while they are excluded by the other three Labour Codes creating legal confusions over the classification of gig/platform workers.
  • Union chalks out the plan but states have to implement it. Differences in state capacities can create hurdles in the implementation.
  • Middle service agencies such as Internet providers might charge exorbitant charges to register and print the E-Shram cards
