From "asonvarsha" : Dear All,
My query is regarding the ESI amount deduction from an employees salary.
If an employee whose salary is Rs.9500/-pm and we increase his salary to 11000/-pm then at what amount should we deduct the ESI on Rs. 10000(fixed amount) or Rs 11000/-. Please revert on urgent basis.
Thank you

ESI ceiling limit is Rs.10,000 if the salary exceeds then we should stop ESI deduction. :icon1:

dear
if you have increased alary to 11000 than inbetween you can not stop deduction and you are required to deduct ESI on 11000.
you can stop deduction in the salary of april and october every year.our return cycle is oct to marc and apr to september.
after completion of this cycle you can stop deduction but inbetween you can not.

dear anu
ESI contribution periods are (oct to mar) & (apr to sep)
if salary is increased between the contribution period then the deduction will be made on full salary i.e 11000 upto the completion of contribution period and after the completion of contribution period there will be no deduction of ESI contribution
thanks

Dear Anu,
I do agree with Mr. Rajeshkhattar. What is said is correct. The Contribution is between from April to Sept, and from October to March. When an employee coming under ESI ceiling in between the contribution, though he crosses the ceiling of Rs. 10,000/- you have to pay on the gross amount except washing allowance, if any. You can stop deduction either in the month of October or April. You have to send a report to the ESI Local office about cessation of the member from the scheme.
Thanking you,

Hi,

We all know that, employees who are drawing more than Rs.10000/- salary per month other than conveyance (regular payment) need not to pay ESI contribution. Those who are earning less than Rs.10000/- will be covered under ESI.

Suppose, an employee is drawing gross salary less than Rs.10000/- per month (regular payment as per appointment order) in the beginning of the contributions period (from April 2009 to September 2009) and earning Variable Incentive, Production Bonus, Over time, Shift allowance separately in the same month. ESI contribution (1.75%) must be deducted from his total earnings.

In the middle of the contribution period ie., between April 2009 and September 2009, he got an increment and fetched to Rs.11200/- gross as regular payment per month apart from earnings like Variable Incentive, Production Bonus, Over time, Shift allowance.

Though, he is drawing more than Rs.10000/- per month (regular payment after increment), employer must deduct ESI contributions on total gross + earnings like Variable Incentive, Production Bonus, Over time, Shift allowance till the end of contribution period. Deduction can be stopped from next contribution period onwards..

Example one employee gross and other earning, ESI deductions per month as follow:

Month Basic HRA FI Other Allowance Gross VI PB OT SHA TG ESI Cont. (1.75%)

Apart from the above, ESI contributions must be made from employee’s payment of EL encashment by applying above condition. The ESI contributions and payment details of EL encashment should be submitted to the ESIC Corporation along with the half – yearly returns (form 6) submission.

Over and above one paisa in calculation of contributions should be rounded off to a rupee.

If the salary salb increases above 10,000PM than the employee is not eligible for ESI deduction. But when salary is increased after the starting of contribution period i.e April to Sep & Oct to March, then the ESI has to deducted till the contribution period gets over.
Hope i have clarified.. For any clarification please revert me...
Thanks
