SRINAGAR, JULY 24, 2020: The Administrative Council (AC), which met here under the chairmanship of Lieutenant Governor, G C Murmu, approved Labour & Employment Department’s Mission Mode Project (MMP) for registration of Building & Other Construction (BOC) Workers. The registration process will be completed by 31st October, 2020.

The Mission Mode Project eases out the registration process by doing away with the physical presence of workers for registration and renewals by using latest technology for online registration through web portal / mobile app, call centre , toll free helpline numbers and help desks.

Consequent upon registration/renewal, the benefits under the Building & Other Construction Workers, Act, 1996 will be extended to the workers in terms of universal social security and welfare schemes by optimally utilizing cess fund.

MMP will also include profiling of all workers who returned to Jammu & Kashmir during the lockdown, for skill mapping to ensure their gainful employment through local jobs.

The registration under MMP will be carried out by Assistant Labour Commissioners under the supervision of District Development Commissioners of concerned districts who have been appointed as District Nodal Officers for the purpose.
