Shram-Suvidha Compliances & Explanation:-

Shram-Suvidha the website itself defines its function as below :

The Unified Shram Suvidha Portal is developed to facilitate reporting of Inspections, and submission of Returns. The Unified Shram Suvidha Portal has been envisaged as a single point of contact between employer, employee and enforcement agencies bringing in transparency in their day-to-day interactions. For integration of data among various enforcement agencies, each inspectable unit under any Labour Law has been assigned one Labour Identification Number (LIN).”

So one can rightly say that Shram Suvidha was created to achieve the following objectives:-

1) Unified portal for all compliances that are made to Chief Labour Commissioner, Director General Mines & Safety and Central Government.

2) Easy control including getting inspection reports from enforcement agencies online, clearing there questions online.

3) Creating 1 identification for the employer among all the various labour laws. Labour Identification Number or LIN, creates one unique identification number that will supplement all individual license numbers such as EPFO Employer Establishment Code, ESIC Employer Registration Number, Contract Labour User Registration Number etc.

4) Ease of compliances like maintenance of registers, one window to file annual returns under various acts along with a single window for filing EPFO & ESIC returns.
