Dear members,
The present wages coverage limit under ESI Act, 1948 is upto and including Rs.15000/- per month. However, the amount of Overtime, if any, should not be added while calculating the wages for excluding any employee from such coverage under said Act. In addition, the employee once covered in the beginning of the contribution period, will continue coverable till close of such contribution period irrespective of any amount of wages.

Hi Even Rs.15001 is not eligible for ESI. The ceiling is Rs.15000, so equal or below to Rs.15000 is the eligibility for ESI

Hi Mamtha!,
The ceiling limit is Rs.15000/PM only. So, equal or below may get eligible. If the salary components have Washing Allowance or Any Reimbursement Allowance it may possible. Excluding those allowance from this 15100 may get eligible. So,give your salary break up. That could help us to solve your query.
All the Best!

HI Yes 15000 of gross and 1500 of OT will be covered under ESI. OT amount has to be deducted for ESI irrespective of amount.

Dear Mamta,
As per ESI act more than 15000 per month not eligible for ESI deduction. who is getting less than or equal to 15000/- gross salary(Fixed component) they are eligible for ESI deduction. Hence, your query amount not eligible for ESI deduction.
