'Shramev Jayate Karyakram' Launched
Oct 17, 2014

On 16 October Prime Minster Narendra Modi launched Pandit Deendayal Upadhyay Shramev Jayate Karyakram. Looking to create an environment conducive to industrial development while also ensuring transparency in the labour sector, new schemes are launched which envisage, among others, portable PF accounts and a unified portal for labour inspection at firms.

A slew of labour reforms launched which aimed at reducing hassles for employees and employers. The schemes titled Deen Dayal Upadhyay Shrameva Jayate include a Universal Account Number (UAN) facility for Employees Provident Fund Organisation (EPFO) subscribers, a new labour inspection scheme and a unified web portal to check labour law compliances.  The unified web portal aims at making compliance process easier for industry and will see a common window for compliances of 16 central labour laws.

The portal will also enhance transparency in labour inspections based on key performance indices and provide an effective grievance redressal system. The new inspections scheme envisages doing away with the discretionary power of inspectors and any decision on inspections will be taken only after the proposed central analysis and intelligence unit analyses the compliance reports by the employers. Also each inspector will have to submit his report online within three days, making the process transparent and accountable.

Through UAN, employees will no longer have to apply for transfer of provident fund (PF) accounts claim, while switching job anywhere in the country, reducing time in funds transfer. Three schemes for the unorganised sectoralso converged—
Rashtriya Swastha Bima Yojana, Aam Aadmi Bima Yojana and Indira Gandhi National Old Pension Scheme.
