New Delhi, May 6 (KNN) The Ministry of Labour & Employment has notified Section 142 of the Social Security Code, 2020 covering applicability of Aadhaar. 

”The notification of section will enable the Ministry of Labour and Employment to collect Aadhaar details for the database of beneficiaries under various social security schemes,” said an official statement from the Ministry on Wednesday.

National Database for unorganised workers (NDUW) is at an advanced stage of development by the National Informatics Centre. The portal is aimed at collection of data for unorganised workers including migrant workers for the purpose of giving benefits of the various schemes of the Government.
