The Labour Market Information System (LMIS) would consolidate, monitor and evaluate all skilling programs across ministries and agencies in the country. Through LMISthe existing knowledge, systems, and technical expertise can be leveraged as much as possible, which would further avoid overlap of generated information and duplication of efforts.

Various modules that are being developed by other stakeholders, such as

  • Sectoral information being collated by the SSCs
  • National Career Service Portal being developed by the DGET
  • Skill Development Management System of the NSDC
  • State level LMISs by State Governments (16 States have already consented to this)
  • Details of schemes and persons trained by the various Ministries

will be plugged into the LMIS, and one national information system will be created that is open for use by all citizens.

Steering Committee for LMIS was constituted in 2013 with the objective of providing overall direction for development and to take key decisions on all the related issues. The Steering Committee is housed in the National Skill Development Agency (NSDA) and different stakeholders in the Labour Market ecosystem including key Ministries of Government of India, State Governments, NSDC, Statistical Organizations, Research Agencies and Industry are part of this Committee.

A LMIS system is central one-stop portal that directly provides easily accessible information, linking users and suppliers of information across ministries, states, sectors, institutions. The system provides easy access to national data and sub-national data across India.

Key stakeholders of the LMIS comprises of Trainees, Training Providers, Industry/Employers, Sector Skill Councils, Government Agencies/Policy Makers, Assessment Agencies, Certifying Agencies, Funding Agencies, International Agencies, Labour Market Tracking Agencies and Government and Private Placement Agencies (inclusive of Employment Exchanges).

The system brings together quantitative and qualitative information concerning labour market actors and their environment and generate key analysis and reports which can be used for various policy interventions by different government stakeholders, as well as by the industry at large.
