The campaign would ensure welfare and well-being of workers in the unorganized sector, State Parliamentary Secretary for Labour and Employment, S Chuba Longkumer said while launching it in Dimapur district on Friday.
    
Emphasising on the different schemes implemented by the central government for specific groups of unorganised workers, he said the state government was also implementing welfare programmes for certain categories of workers.
    
There was, however, a huge deficit in coverage of agriculture workers and construction labourers in matters of labour protection and social security measures, he said.
    
Longkumer pointed out that though people were aware of the programmes implemented by different departments there was no defined common platform through which beneficiaries could avail the benefits without going through complex formalities.
    
Further, Longkumer urged NGOs, trade unions and other such organisations to participate and extend their support.
    
Deputy Commission of Dimapur, Kesonyü Yhome said unorganised workers play an important role in India's economy.
