Labour Card

Labor Card, also known as Labor Identity Card or Shramik Card, is an official document issued by the government to workers in the unorganized sector such as construction workers, street vendors, domestic workers and others. Which also acts as identity proof. It provides access to various welfare schemes and benefits provided by the government. The card usually contains the worker’s name, photograph, occupation details.
