LocoNav sets up e-Shram camps for drivers on National Safety Day
LocoNav aims to further enable fleet owners and operators by integrating access to the e-Shram portal into its fleet management app
The AI-driven full-stack fleet tech company LocoNav has set up e-Shram camps for the driver community at three prominent Transport Nagars in the Delhi NCR region on March 4, 2022, which is the National Safety Day.
Working towards their mission of positively impacting the livelihoods of 100Mn drivers and owners globally by 2030, the fleet tech startup further aims to integrate access to the e-Shram portal by government of India -ministry of labour and employment into its platform in the future to enable fleet owners and operators.
As per the ministry of road transport and highways, Indian roads witness 415 deaths per day in accidents, the highest in the world. About 1.5 lakh people are killed in road accidents and 3.5 lakh are crippled annually in India. Drivers also face several risks in their day-to-day work including regulatory fines, asset damage, and cargo theft.
"By creating awareness and facilitating education and easy access to the government's e-Shram initiative on National Safety Day, LocoNav reinstates its commitment towards the upliftment of the driver community," reads the release.
The e-Shram portal was launched last year by the ministry of labour and employment of India to form a database of workers in unorganized sectors. Through these e-Shram camps set by LocoNav, drivers will be able to generate e-Shram cards for themselves and use it to gain all social security benefits of the central and state government for unorganized workers. Workers registered under the e-Shram portal will be enrolled under PMSBY (Pradhan Mantri Suraksha Bima Yojana). Workers get financial support, a premium waver of one year, more job opportunities, and social security scheme benefits giving them and their families a sense of security.
