Out of the 1.3 Billion Indians, more than 450 Million of them are working in the informal economy and aspiring to move to formal jobs. A good percentage of these are migrants from different parts of the country, typically from the villages in North and North East, who migrate to tier-1 cities in search of a better life. They work as security guards, delivery staff, drivers, retail staff, carpenters, plumbers, housekeeping, factory workers, construction workers – what we call as the blue and grey collar jobs.
One of the biggest impediments in their transition from an informal to formal economy has been the lack of credible data of their trustworthiness. This is a segment where digitisation is almost 0%.
We are working on building a digital platform which can help build a solid trust relationship between the blue-collar workforce and their employers, in order to provide a better life for them in terms of better opportunities, better skills, better employers, better credit, better services, and much more.
