The ESI Corporation has approved to enhance wage ceiling from Rs 10,000 per month to Rs15,000 per month for coverage of employees under the ESI Scheme in its 149th meeting held on Friday under the chairmanship of Union Minister of Labour and Employment Mallikarjun Kharge.

Union Minister of State for Labour and Employment Harish Rawat and the vice-chairman, ESIC, were also present in the meeting.

Keeping in view the increase in cost of living index and recommendations of the Parliamentary Standing Committee on Labour, the corporation increased the wage ceiling limit for coverage of the employees under the ESI Scheme.

This will help the corporation to provide social security net to more and more employees of the organised sector.

  5. Varghese Philip says:

    Government should increase the Ceiling Limit of ESIC upto Rs.50000/- instead of upto Rs.25000/-. Huge additional amount can be earned by the Government. Reason being the cost of Hospital equipments and salary of staffs have tremendously increased. Ceiling Limit of Rs.25,000/- will not serve any purpose of Government for maintaining the ESIC scheme and related ESIC hospital.

    Hi friends,

    Its Clear that, whose gross salary is less than 15001pm (180001 PA), they will pay for ESIC.
    If any persons may get below 15000 due to Deductions like (loss of pay, insurance etc.,.) and they having gross salary more than 15000 in this situation they wont pay for ESIC.

    I think its clear.

    Hi All,

    I wanted to know if my salary is 20,000/- pm but due to some reason I took leave for 15 days in that month I will be getting 10,000/- as my salary. In this month do I need to pay any ESI for that Month. Kindly let me know. My office people are saying that in any Month if your salary comes less then 15,000/- I need to pay ESI. Kindly Help this is little confusing…….

    Dear All,

    As on date, in case your monthly salary is less than equal to Rs.15,000/- (excluding Over Time Allowance), then as an employee you are required to contribute only 1.75% of your net monthly salary and the balance 4.5% is to be contributed by your employer. The total contribution to your file is 6.5% of your net monthly salary. There is no way an employer to back-charge 4.5% of the ESIC contribution to an insured employee. ESIC Contribution on your salary slip should show as 1.75% of your net monthly salary (excluding Over Time Pay, if any).

  14. Usha Nair says:

    Minimum required members are not there in our organisation only 3 members are there recovery and Employers contribution totalling to 6.5% is deposited on the gross salary which of no use to the employees they are not able to find doctors registering themselves in their area and are against their will to contribute can we aply for excemption due to less no of employees. Replying this regard is expected. You should have advise each employer the revised 11 digit no on mail/letter which would avoid individually to attend your office personally. Hope so you can do something in this regard. Our account No is 52-8271-101

  16. ambika singh says:

    esic should publish statement of each i.p. mentioning the amount received by i.p. & benefit offered to him in terms of money, local office wise from where the i.p. is related, to make the esic more transparent.

  17. varsha m kadam says:

    As per discussion with ESIC people he told me that I am not eligible for the take a benefit from ESIC for leave and other benefits, because I am entered under ESIC from May 2010 . So, they told that I was not completed 9 month in ESIC.
    I wish to take maternity leave from date 20th Nov 2010. I would like to avail the entire maternity leave and benefits. Please guide me process of applying for the benefits.
    I hope you will consider my situation and allow me to take maternity leave with all benefits.
    Awaiting for your reply.
