Hi Jayavelk_mba
The Employees’ State Insurance Act, provides for certain benefits to employees in case of sickness, maternity and employment injury.
The Act extends to the whole of India. It applies to all factories (including Government factories but excluding seasonal factories) employing ten or more persons and carrying on a manufacturing process with the aid of power or employing 20 or more persons and carrying on a manufacturing process without the aid of power and such other establishments as the Government may specify.
Will an IT company come under the scheme of ESI. Ours is an IT firm which has 70 employees. We are registered under the companies Act.There are employees who are getting salary below 7500/-
Hello Asha and Jayavelk,

Every employee (including casual and temporary employees), who is in receipt of salary upto Rs. 6,500 p.m. is entitled to be insured under the E.S.I. Act.

The employer is required to contribute at the rate of 4.75% of the gross salary paid/payable. The employees are also required to contribute at the rate of 1.75% of their gross salary.


:arrow: The employer should get his factory or establishments registered with the E.S.I. Corporation within 15 days after the Act becomes applicable to it, and obtain the employer’s Code Number.

:arrow: The employer should obtain the declaration form from the employees covered under the Act and submit the same alongwith the return of declaration forms, to the E.S.I. office. He should arrange for the allotment of Insurance Numbers to the employees and their Identity Cards.

:arrow: The employer should deposit the employees’ and his own contributions to the E.S.I. Account in the prescribed manner, whether he has sufficient resources or not, his liability under the Act cannot be disputed. He can not justify non-payment of E.S.I. contribution due to non-availability of finance.

:arrow: The employer should furnish a Return of Contributions alongwith the challans of monthly payment, within 30 days of the end of each contribution period.

:arrow: The employer should not reduce the wages of an employee on account of the contribution payable by him (employer).

He should also furnish to the authorities such further information and particulars of an accident as may be required.

:arrow: The employer should inform the local office and the nearest E.S.I. dispensary/hospital, in case of death of any employee, immediately.

:arrow: The employer must not put to work any sick employee and allow him leave, if he has been issued the prescribed certificate.
