  • LIN is issued by the Ministry of Labour

Labour Identification Number (LIN) is a unique identification number issued to employers to simplifying business regulations and bringing in transparency and accountability in labor inspections by various agencies and bodies under the administrative control of Labour Ministry.

Government of India plans to do away with all employer codes being issued by separate Labour enforcement agencies such as Employees’ State Insurance Corporation (ESIC), Employees’ Provident Fund Organisation (EPFO), Chief Labour Commissioner(Central) {CLC(C)} and Directorate General Of Mines Safety (DGMS) etc. by replacing them with new Labour Identification Number (LIN).

LIN is provided by Shram Suvidha Portal. It is provided to businesses enabling them to submit returns and get various registrations required under Labour laws at a single online window. A unit registered with different Labour enforcement agencies is identified uniquely and allotted a single unique LIN. It would gradually subsume multiple registration numbers presently being issued separately by Labour Enforcement Agencies – ESIC registration Number, EPFO number, Registration or license number issued under Contract Labour (Regulation & Abolition) Act, 1970. This indeed would meet an objective of ease of business itself as maintenance of multiple registration numbers by businessmen itself is a cumbersome task.

Ministry of Labour & Employment, Government of India and the State Governments enforce more than 44 Labour laws in their respective sphere. The Unified Shram Suvidha Portal is developed to facilitate reporting of inspections, and submission of returns. It has become a single point of contact between employer, employee and enforcement agencies bringing in transparency in their day-to-day interactions. For integration of data among various enforcement agencies, each inspectable unit under any Labour Law has been assigned one LIN. This body has come into existence after requests from various stakeholders for ensuring simplification of formats, ease of compliance, transparency in inspections and speedy redressal of grievances. For addressing these concerns Shram Suvidha Portal has been launched.

Shram Suvidha Portal was launched by Honourable Prime Minister, Shri Narendra Modi on October 16, 2014. The portal has been created with the mission to become one-stop-shop for Labour law compliance and is a platform that can be shared by all the Labour enforcement agencies under control of Central and State governments.
