Accenture Gets Maharashtra Government (India) Consulting Contract

The Government of Maharashtra (India) has awarded Accenture a three-year, management consulting and technology contract to help manage the administration of labor laws and create a management system to support services ranging from renewal of licenses to filing online grievances through an interactive portal. The size of the contract was not shared.

The contract supports the Mahashramm initiative, designed to better manage and track services and payments through collaboration with banks for India’s unorganized workforce of 20 million people.  The program has been cited by the International Labor Organization as one of the leading best practices in the world.

Accenture will help implement a management framework and technology system to provide services, including registration and filing of applications, by building an online portal and creating a database to provide financial inclusion to unorganized workers using biometric signatures. This phase will be integrated with the Unique Identification Program (UID) of the Government of India.
