ESI is calculated on Gross Salary. If your gross salary is greater than Rs. 10,000, legally your employer must deduct ESI and add his contribution as well.

If you can mention your salary break up here, you might get an answer.

Hi Vijay,

Upto salary 10K ESI is applicable. If your salary is 5K your ESI would be INR 325 per month (Your Contribution is 88 and ur Emplr. Contribution is 238). Now you can availed ESI facility from your employer.

Hey there,

As mentioned in the earlier posts, ESI is calculated on the total gross salary. You said that your basic salary is INR 5000, please note that apart from basic, in case there are some other components also in your salary, like HRA, Conveyance etc and the total is above INR 10000, then you are exempt from the scheme; else you may have to bea the same till your gross salary goes to INR 10000.

Dear Friends,
From the comments above I have observed that Law and Views are being mixed up quite often.When we are discussing law points we must be sure about the view expressed.
Here in this case,It has to be clarified that ESI Scheme is a Mandatory Scheme of the Govt of India and is a good Scheme. We should try to explore the benefits under the scheme.The Wage Ceiling as of now is Rs.15,000/- and not Rs.10,000/- as mentioned by some members. For a brief summary may visit
