MoU Signed to Integrate eMigrate Services with CSCs Across India

MoU signing

In a significant development, a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) has been signed between the Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) and the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology (MeitY), along with CSC eGovernance Services India Limited. This collaboration aims to synergize efforts between CSC SPV and MEA to deliver eMigrate services via Common Service Centers (CSCs) nationwide.

The eMigrate project, primarily targeting blue-collar workers heading to Emigration Check Required (ECR) countries, was created to streamline the emigration process by making it entirely online. The project also aims to bring foreign employers, registered recruitment agents, and insurance companies onto a single platform, promoting safe and legal migration practices.

Over the years, there has been a notable increase in the number of Indians seeking employment abroad, with their remittances contributing significantly to the economy.

The MoU was signed during the National Workshop on “Powering Transformation through UI/UX for Digital Governance,” attended by prominent dignitaries including Shri Rajesh Singh, Joint Secretary & Financial Advisor, MeitY; Ms. Debjani Ghosh, President, NASSCOM; Shri Amit Agrawal, CEO, UIDAI & DG, NIC, among others.

The agreement was signed by Shri Bramha Kumar, Joint Secretary (OE & PGE) Division, MEA; Shri Sanket Bhondve, Joint Secretary (DigiGov), MeitY; and Shri Akshay Jha, COO, CSC eGovernance Services India Limited.

As part of this MoU, the eMigrate Portal of MEA will be integrated with CSC’s portal to offer several services to citizens, including registration of applicants on the eMigrate portal through CSCs, assistance in uploading and processing required documents on the eMigrate portal through CSCs, support for booking medical and other necessary services for migrant workers or applicants registered on the eMigrate portal, and increasing awareness about eMigrate services across India.
