Dear Mr. V. Srikanth,
Thank very much for the information. but sir, my query is totally different.
I know the eligibility salary for ESIC is Rs.15000/- and the contribution period is April to Sept. & Oct. to Mar.
Even if an worker once covered in the month April or Oct. irrespective of wages, whether it is more than 15000/- or less than that, employer should deduct the ESIC. Here, there is no issues for those monthly paid workers.
But the issues is here, we are paying our workers on daily basis i.e. they will get the wages for no. of days worked in a month. If an worker work for full month days i.e. 26 days (excluding Sundays) he will get a wages of more than 15000/- and eventually he will be out of esic. However, if a worker absent for 2 days and if he gets only 24 days wages then his wages will be below 15000/- My question is how to treat such worker, are the employer bound to deduct ESIC of this worker? or he will be out of ESI coverage as if he had have worked for 26 days his salary would be more than 15000/-.
Also since October -12 to January-13 most of our workers are getting more than 15000/- wages as they work 26/27 days (Excluding Sundays) they were out of ESIC. But in this month i.e. Feb-13 having only 28 days and the worker will get wages of 24 days only and their wages will be less than 15000/- wages only. Here also my question is, Are they recovered for ESIC or not?
Kindly advise me.
