Mumbai: Maharashtra government's Labour department has designed an innovative Labour Management System (LMS) on a public-private partnership (PPP) mode.

"The pilot project of the system, called 'Mahashramm', has successfully been completed and we are rolling it out in other parts of the state," Principal Secretary (Labour) Kavita Gupta said.

Chief Minister Prithviraj Chavan and Labour Minister Hasan Mushrif lauded the project at a function here on Tuesday, she said.

"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.

From the online services to be provided to the establishments and businesses, user charges would be collected which will go into the Mahashramm society fund and the same will be paid to the total service provider (TSP) to register the labour force and give financial inclusion to them at no cost to the labourers.

"No frills bank account will be opened for every worker, free of cost, as per the KYC norms endorsed by the RBI," she said.

The state government has stipulated to make all the payments (payments of wages, bonus gratuity etc) in organised and unorganised sector (except the domestic and agricultural workers) to workers, who are in continuous employment, having payments of over Rs 3,000 per month, only through cheque or bank transfers.
