Harsh Kumar Mehta: Sir, with reference to your remarks "make sure the hike proposed from 70% to 90 % a few months back has been implemented" in thread "http://www.citehr.com/567289-clarification-esi-treatment-reg-esic.html", I have not found any circular on the point whether there is any amendment to the relevant rule (Rule 55(2) of ESI (Central) Rules, 1950). Hope, your goodself will advise me if there was any such proposal or there is any such amendment. With regards; Harsh Kumar Mehta, Noida (UP).
Madhu.T.K: It was already there when the ceiling was Rs 6500. In a recent case the Cooperative Societies in Kerala who were contributing on actual salary got a favourable judgement from the Supreme Court that their pension should be calculated on the basis of their higher contribution.
