Shillong, March 5: Meghalaya Deputy Chief Minister, Prestone Tynsong, today launched the online registration portal for migrant workers under the Meghalaya Identification Registration (Safety and Security) of Migrant Workers Act 2020, in a function organized by the Labour Department at the NIC Conference Hall, Shillong.

The aim of the Meghalaya Identification Registration (Safety and Security) of Migrant Workers Act 2020 is to ensure the maintenance of public order and protection and safety of migrant workers in Meghalaya through identification and mandatory registration of all such workers in the State. As such the portal enables the migrant workers and persons/contractors employing migrant labourers/workers to register them, failing which they will be liable to a fine of up to Rs. 5000/-. Registration through the portal can be made from any part of the country, or through the common service centers or a help desk at the registration office with a payment of Rs. 50/-.

Speaking on the occasion, Shri. P Tynsong said that with the passing of the Meghalaya Identification Registration (Safety and Security) of Migrant Workers Act 2020, the authority for issuing labour licenses now lie with the State Government. Stating that the launch of the online portal will improve the ease of doing business, he urged all stakeholders to utilize the portal so that a record of genuine migrant labourers/workers is maintained in the state. Pointing out that this move is crucial for the development of the State as labour forces from outside are required to complete projects of different departments, he reiterated that only those migrant workers/labourers who fulfill various criteria stated under the Act will be issued with a labour license.
