Know all about E-Shram Card, registration online, benefits, payment status, balance check, and download
The Indian Government has started the e-Shram yojana to offer social security to workers in unorganised sectors and has introduced the e-Shram portal for such workers. The objective of this initiative (e-Shram portal) is to collect the information of unorganised workers to provide them with the benefits of multiple government schemes.
It is very important for people working in an unorganised sector to apply for a Shramik card or e-Shram card as they (labourers and workers working in the unorganised sectors) can get several benefits, like financial aid in case of incapacity, a pension after 60 years, death insurance, etc.
The aim of the e-Shram card is to offer access for unorganised workers to all the new schemes and facilities of the government using the e-Shram portal.
It has been reported that approximately 11 crore Indian citizens have successfully enrolled with the e-Shramik Portal. The ones who are still waiting for the registration procedure face a significant time constraint. Those who have enrolled already are undergoing the document verification procedure which will also add benefits from the initiative.

WHICH IS THE UNORGANISED SECTOR?
In a nutshell, an unorganised sector is not an organisation and includes work like selling goods, services, and production and has a few workers. Workers get wages in the name of salaries. Such sectors are not covered under the EPFO and ESIC. Workers working in such unorganised sectors are considered unorganised workers. Also, it should be noted that a person who is not a member of EPFO or ESIC or is a self-employed worker or a home-based worker is also called an unorganised worker.
