Facility for Filing Online Single Return to be Launched Tomorrow
The facility for filing Single Online Common Return under 8 Central Labour Acts / Rules on the ShramSuvidha Portal will be launched tomorrow. This service will reduce the transaction costs of business and make it easy and convenient to meet their obligations.
The Ministry of Labour & Employment has developed a unified Web Portal ‘ShramSuvidha Portal’, catering to four major Organisations under the Ministry of Labour& Employment, namely Office of Chief Labour Commissioner (Central), Directorate General of Mines Safety, Employees’ Provident Fund Organization and Employees’ State Insurance Corporation. The 4 main features of this Portal are:
♣ Unique labour identification number (LIN) is allotted to Units to facilitate online registration
♣ Filing of self-certified and simplified Single Online Return by the establishments. Units will only file a single consolidated Return online instead of filing separate Returns.
♣ Transparent Labour inspection scheme through computerized system based on risk based criteria and uploading the inspection reports within 72 hours by the Labour inspectors.
♣ Timely redressal of grievances will be ensured with the help of the portal.
The ShramSuvidhaWeb-Portal was earlier launched by the Prime Minister on 16.10.2014 and the facility for allotment of LIN and the Transparent Inspection Scheme were activated on the Web-Portal since then. Now moving ahead, Ministry of Labour & Employment proposes to formally launch the facility for filing Online Single Return under the 8 Central Rules through the ShramSuvidha Portal.
