has successfully been completed and we are rolling it out in
other parts of the state," Principal Secretary (Labour) Kavita
Chief Minister Prithviraj Chavan and Labour Minister
Hasan Mushrif lauded the project at a function here on Tuesday,
"The system is a win-win situation for industries and
labour, as it interlinks industries, shops and establishments,
construction contractors and other businesses, by providing
financial inclusion and labour registration," Gupta said.

establishments and businesses, user charges would be collected
which will go into the Mahashramm society fund and the same
