Centre flags off process to build database on tribal migrants; Goa to be testing ground for data collection | India News

NEW DELHI: The Centre has flagged off the process to build a database of tribal migrants on Friday by launching the “Shram Shakti- national migration support portal”. Goa will be leading the ground test on data collection through its brand new migration cell that will now set-out the framework to register migrants coming in by road and rail to work in the state’s hospitality, construction and fisheries sectors.
Besides Goa, Maharashtra, Odisha, Gujarat, Telangana and Sikkim are states where the Tribal Research Institutes in collaboration with the state authorities are also working on the processes to collect migrant data and contribute to the central tribal data respository.
The data collected at the state level will be uploaded on the central portal set-up by the ministry of tribal affairs and will be available for analysis to the central ministries and states. In the backdrop of the challenges faced by migrants during the pandemic, this is the first time that MoTA is working towards collating state level data centrally on tribal migrants to not only know their numbers but also link them to schemes. The data collection process will be done down to the village level and MoTA is trying to reach all states to join in this exercise.
Goa is considered to be a destination state for migrants from tribal dominant states. An estimated 4-5 lakh migrants come to Goa each year from states of Odisha, Jharkhand, Chhattisgarh, Bihar, UP and Karnataka.
The Goa Migrant Workers Cell (GMWC) will be steered by the state’s labour secretary as chairman and has been assigned the mandate to collect the demographic details, skills, access to welfare schemes and migration patterns of all who will be registered. It is also proposed to set-up a migration facilitation centre to link migrants and families to various government schemes.
Chief minister of Goa, Pramod Sawant said that the cell would address multiple needs of migrants ranging from legal support, access to health, to insurance and financial inclusion.
Launching the portal, tribal affairs minister Arjun Munda cited the migrant exodus after the lockdown to drive home the importance of a database for linking the workforce to schemes and assistance. Munda also launched the tribal training module, Shram Saathi, to ensure that the process of livelihood migration is safe and productive.
