Background verification by NSR

Does top Indian IT companies ask NSR for background verification report? I am sure the top IT companies in India use thier own third party vendors rather than relying on NSR empanelled people.I have registered in NSR one year back as my new company made it mandatory to do so.. but after that it just remains as it.. I have not even renewed it.

Just want to know.. does IT companies use the NSR data? If suppose IT companies initiate background verification using NSR, NSR will inform us before going ahead with the verification process i guess..

Can anyone please confirm on this? Especially someone from the HR team of top 5 IT companies in India can throw some light on this..

Thanks a lot..

NSR? I suppose National Skills Registry? Why you're worried about background check or whatever check if you have nothing to hide? Let them do every check including which breakfast you like? If you're honest you don't have to worry isn't it?

Hi Manikandan,

Firstly, I'm not from HR, and hence, can't comment from recruiters' perspective.

IMHO, NSR was theoretically a very nice idea, but somehow, due to lack of publicity (or some other reasons), it didn't fly as per expectations.

I don't remember any of my colleagues are having enrolled in NSR, and I myself haven't faced any trouble due not not being enrolled in NSR.

As you've mentioned, most of the companies hire third party vendors, and they are very good at extracting much more information than someone would put in NSR.

As Sai said, if you don't have to hide anything, why to worry?

I hope it helps.

Most companies use a third party to verify your background. So the question should ideally be answered by someone working in such an agency. I dont see how enrollment into the NSR or lack of could be a problem. As long as there are no red flags in the data, you need not worry.
