Ministry of Labour & employment vide DO letter No.Z- 20025/15/2016-LRC dated 09.03-2016 has decided to move towards a regime of online maintenance of registers/records mandated by labour laws, by business/establishments and integrate the same with Shram Suvidha Portal. A unified Shram Suvidha Portal is developed to facilitate reporting of inspections, and submission of Returns. This has been envisaged as a single point of contact between employer, employee and enforcement agencies bringing in transparency in their day-to-day interactions.
Ministry of Labour & Employment has issued following directions:
“If any employer/establishment makes available registers/records in electronic form and accessible to the inspector/authority so as to be usable for a subsequent reference, then that employer/establishment should not be required to produce print/hard copy of these documents”.
This is applicable for PF Inspection, ESI Inspection, Labour Department Inspection
