Dear Dinesh,
Your Company does not have any Statutory Liability to provide them such facilities.
If your company wishes to give such Welfare Facilities to those students then it is acceptable.
Apprentice Act covers Vocational Trainee, you can cover them under Group Medical policy under WC which you would be existing in your Company,instead of ESIC.
Ref: ESIC Corp.Mumbai v/s Indian Hume PipesCo.Ltd.(1963)2LLJ.104(Bom)
An Apprentice is a trainee not a employee/worker, and any provision of Labour Law does not apply to him unless they are specifically made applicable to him.

Boss they are catering students we are giving 1000/-p.m. as stipend
every month we are disbursing 20,000-25,000 as stiphend with out diducting the ESI from it.
one of ESI inspector said that ESI contribution is mandatory for the Trainees as per the new ESI amendment. i brought this information to my manager but he denied it.
just i want is it mandary of deducting ESI from Stiphend for the trainees(students)

Ask that inspector for new amendment. Statutory Deductions such as PF/Gratuity/PT are calculated on PF base i.e. Basic+D.A. and ESIC on Gross.
