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 e-Governance Services India Limited.

This partnership aims to integrate the eMigrate services with Common Services Centres (CSCs) across the country, providing blue-collar workers and other migrants with seamless access to essential services.

Common Services Centers (CSCs) are a cornerstone of the Digital India mission, serving as front-end delivery points for digital services, particularly in rural and remote areas. With over 5.50 lakh CSCs delivering more than 700 digital services, they play a crucial role in achieving the vision of a digitally and financially inclusive society.

CSCs provide a range of services, including government and public utility services, social welfare schemes, financial services, educational courses, skill development, healthcare, agricultural services, and digital literacy programmes.

The eMigrate project, primarily designed to assist workers going to Emigration Check Required (ECR) countries, aims to address the challenges faced by migrant workers by streamlining the emigration process. The project also brings together foreign employers, registered recruitment agents, and insurance companies on a single platform, promoting safe and legal migration.

Under this MoU, the eMigrate Portal of MEA will be integrated with CSC’s portal to provide the following services:

  1. Registration Facilitation: Assisting applicants with registration on the eMigrate portal through CSCs.
  2. Document Processing: Helping applicants upload and process required documents on the eMigrate portal.
  3. Service Booking: Facilitating the booking of medical and other necessary services for migrant workers registered on the eMigrate portal.
  4. Awareness Creation: Promoting awareness of eMigrate services among citizens across India.

The MoU was signed during the National Workshop on “Powering Transformation through UI/UX for Digital Governance as reported by OpenGov Asia. The workshop aimed to establish guidelines for improving user experiences on government digital platforms. The event brought together stakeholders from various sectors to discuss best practices in UX/UI design, which is essential for enhancing public-facing digital services.

The workshop featured panel discussions on topics like Best UX Practices and Citizen Engagement with Government, and it included showcases by industry leaders. Recognition was given to five individuals for their outstanding contributions to UX/UI design. The workshop emphasised the importance of effective UX/UI in making government services more efficient and user-friendly.

India’s commitment to digital governance was also showcased through the Department of Administrative Reforms & Public Grievances’ National e-Governance Webinar Series (NeGW). The sixth webinar focused on “Excellence in adopting Emerging Technologies” and highlighted two initiatives:

Trinetra: Integrated Command and Control Center (i3C) – This initiative from Gujarat’s Police Department enhances surveillance and urban management through advanced analytics and inter-departmental coordination, significantly improving crime tracking and citizen safety.

North Eastern Spatial Data Repository (NeSDR) – This project from Meghalaya’s North Eastern Space Applications Centre uses geospatial analytics to address societal issues like deforestation and disaster management, providing a comprehensive platform for advanced data analysis and government planning.

The signing of this MoU aims to expand channels for safe and legal migration at the grassroots level, specifically aiming to prevent exploitation by unscrupulous elements as Indian citizens seek employment overseas. By integrating eMigrate services with CSCs, the government seeks to enhance accessibility and convenience for migrant workers, ensuring a more secure and streamlined e-migration process.
