Empanelled Background Checkers (EBCs) are the entities empanelled by NASSCOM and NDML to render the services of checking the veracity of the information registered by Knowledge Professional(KP) with National Skills Registry (NSR). These entities will record the results of the background check on the NSR system.
NASSCOM & NDML, in consultation with the industry have evolved background check procedures, standardized the format in which the results may be recorded in NSR. Only such entities that are agreeable to follow these standards are empanelled by NDML. EBC will have to ensure that the quality of background check is not compromised. EBC will record the results of background check in NSR. Subscriber companies authorised by the registered professional can, thus, view the verified profile of such professional.
Background Check Request & Procedure
Background check may be requested by the present employer company or by a NSR Subscriber company authorised by the registered professional or by the professional himself / herself. If a company has requested background check, the terms and conditions of background check, reporting requirements etc. are determined mutually by such company and EBC selected by it. In addition to reporting the results to the company, the EBC will also record the results of background verification on NSR against the details of the professional. This creates a permanent verified profile of the professional.
In order to keep their NSR profile ready with background check results, the professional can also request for a background check on details recorded by them on NSR. Verification request can be for personal details like date of birth, father's name, passport number, Permanent Account Number (PAN) or for present and permanent address, academic qualification, technical qualification and employment details. In this case, verification request of the professional is referred by NSR system to one of the EBCs. In this case as the verification is requested by the professional, the verification charges will be payable by him/her to the EBC directly. The EBC will get in touch with him / her for collecting the required documents and fee for processing the verification.
The EBCs crosscheck the information submitted by professional from the source of the information e.g. address is verified by personal visit, qualifications with the concerned colleges / universities / institutions and employment details with the employer companies.
In order to facilitate that professionals registered in the database are verified for important details, a concept of "Baseline Verification" is introduced. Baseline Verification of a profile includes verifying date of birth, father's name, passport number, PAN, present and permanent address, one academic and one technical qualification and one employment details. The baseline verification charges are Rs. 1800 plus applicable Taxes and actual fees paid by EBC (if any) to the university / college / institution for verification. The fee is to be paid by the verification requesting professional directly to the concerned EBC and will be paid before EBC starts verification process.
After verification is completed, the EBCs record their findings in the form of verification comments against the professional's details on NSR system. These comments can be seen by the professional, his / her employer and the company authorised by such professional.
