vivaekDear Devika Das,
All the best for your new assignment. ESI is mandatory (social security act), and mediclaim is optional employee welfare. So ESI has to be compulsorily made and mediclaim rests with the management decision.

arti shahDear Devika,
If the employees in your firm are more than 10 then ESIC becomes mandatory. Kindly get your firm registered with ESIC.
Mediclaim though is not mandatory. However you can initiate this in your firm. Explain the management the benefits of this and convince them.

firstname.lastname@example.orgAs Ms. Arti Shah has rightly said that ESIC is mandatory if the employee strength is more than 10. If not it is not mandatory so one can opt the other option of Mediclaim.
Even though if you are registered under ESIC and any employee who are not covered under ESIC or is beyond the coverage can opt for Mediclaim

ESI is coming under Social Security Act which is mandatory for all Organisations having Manpower strength of at least 10 nos.
But, those are getting more then Rs.15,000/- Gross Salary per month are not coming under ESI facility
email@example.comAnother thing Devika. If you are new and not aware about ESI, please contact the Local ESI Office to register your Organisation. You can not take ESI like Mediclem. The procedure is different.

I am sharing this just for your knowledge

mmsmnkYou can order for a copy of ESI Act and its procedures from the nearest branch of ESI Organisation and go though it.You will know the coverage and benefits to the employees under the scheme and then, decide for yourself after convincing your higher ups.
Besides,Mediclaim is also available as an option.You can discuss this with any of the nearby Insurance Companies and know what they offer.Then decide if the scheme suits your organisation.
You can go for both the schemes, or, either of the two.
