Dear Prasad,
well said !
but there must be some rule/judgement or anything else which specifically proves that Arrear Paid on Revision of wages are "WAGE" or "other additional remuneration, if any,"
It is clear in the act that any wage Paid or Payable whose interval is not exceeding 2 months is a wage.
I think "OR Payable" is enough for the justification that Arrear on Wages are "Wages"
We cannot take the plea that Arrear on wages are Paid once in a year due to revision of min. wages or increment and thus the interval condition save us from paying the ESI amount!!!
but the question now arises is: if govt. wants to revise the min. wages from 5 months back, Should we as an employer liable to pay ESI on those increase wages as the time period in question is more than 2 months and this is not the mistake of employer???
Seniors Pls. reply!!

Dear Amit,
Can you kindly upload complete Employer's Guide.......
Really it will be very helpful to all ......
Earlier we too were asked to deposit contribution on arrears wherever current contribution period was concerned, it means if there is rise in any period, you were asked to deposit the contribution where Returns were to be filed, as because Employees were getting the benefit of it for the same contribution period.

Dear Prasad, I agree with you as arrears is just a part of salary which was not paid to the employee on time no other funda is applicable to this.

Please visit ESI Contributions | Contributions for arrears of wages to know the instructions of the ESI Corporation for the purpose.
As far as EPF contribution is concerned, you have to deduct the contribution on the arrears of wages subject to the condition of employer contribution on wages of Rs.6500 (including the wages of the month for which arrears are being paid). If the contribution was already paid on Rs.6,500 earlier, no additional contribution is payable.
Best of luck.

Dear Mr. Manish jee,
I too agree with your view. As mentioned by you "OR Payable" is enough for the justification that Arrear on Wages are "Wages"
Here the logic is Benefit period against Contribution period
Employee will get benefit based on Contributions paid during certain period I.e. April to Sept & Oct to March
After completion of benefit period, even if we release arrears then there is no use as corresponding benefit period is over

Dear Sir,
I am working with an NGO(Charitable Organization) for a few years. Our staff strength is 60. Our Organization is not registered with ESIC so far. Is it mandatory for this Organization to register with ESIC? And if we apply for ESIC Registration now, will we be asked to pay the contributions for the back period upto the time of formation of the NGO? Please clarify?
