Registration drive for construction workers from August 24 to September 11
In a bid to expand this whole registration procedure, the Delhi government from August 24 to September 11 will hold a mega campaign for the registration of construction labourers named as Niraman Mazdoor Registration Abhiyan.
Delhi Employment and Labour Minister Gopal Rai on Sunday said the Delhi government will set up camps at 70 schools for registration of construction labourers at all the 70 assembly constituencies.
Rai said even sitting at home, construction workers can submit the application online by visiting edistrict.delhigovt.nic.in.
He said to speed up the process, detailed information has been given to all the 70 MLAs, trade unions and agencies so that they can join hands and help the construction workers for registration. The minister said that for registration, the age should be between 18-60, certification of work, photo, local ID proof, bank account number and Aadhaar card is required. He said that the Delhi government has nearly 18 different assistance schemes for the registered construction workers.
He said: “Till date, the process was that the construction labourers were filling the registration forms from the local cyber cafes and then for the verification, they were visiting the Delhi government offices. Now the Delhi government has decided to set up camps at all the 70 assembly constituencies. Each and every assembly constituency will have one camp for the registration of construction labourers from tomorrow. These camps will be set up at the schools. The construction labourers will have to identify the camp of his or her area and visit there for registration.”
“During the registration process, the physical verification of the construction workers will also be done immediately. This way the construction labourers will not have to worry about visiting the Delhi government offices for physical verification. Both the registration and physical verification will be done together during this 15-day registration camp for the construction labourers. After the successful completion of this 15-day registration camp, the Delhi government will analyse the process and decide the future action plan,” said Rai.
