Hey dont resign the company you can go on medical leave then ESIC will pay you your salary and even your company if have any rules for pregnant women so then can also pay you your salary

Resigning from job due to pregnancy is not a wise decision. Where ever you are working, just raise application for Maternity Leave along with Medical Certificate regarding delivery date. As per Maternity Benefit Act, you are entitled for 12 weeks paid leave, which can be availed for 6 weeks before delivery and 6 weeks after delivery.
If there is any complications with the pregnancy you can also claim for Medical Leaves or Leave Without Pay with support of medical certificate of Doctor stating the complications. These type of leaves can be taken prior / after delivery. Hope this will help you.

if i resign on february or march?? What is the basis in it..pls let me knw of it.

ESIC rules allow you 12 weeks of paid maternity leave.
They will cover you for all problems and medical costs till the delivery and related complications (coverage as per rules continue till the treatment is over).
I understand that you have already decided not to continue working after child-birth.
I think you are ethical in your approach and therefore dont want to leave the company in a lurch by not joining after end of maternity leave.
What you should do is to take your HR into confidence. Tell them you plan to leave the job. But in order to get ESIC benefits, you wish to resign after the maternity leave is over. That way, they are aware you will leave and will hunt for a replacement and you will get the ESIC Benefits. Also, then you will be covered till December 2014 (seniors correct me if i am wrong on this)

That's depend on the contribution period. If you have contributed in the particular contribution period for atleast 78 days you will be elgible for ESIC benifits in the following entire benifit period : -
Contribution period Corresponding Benefit period
1st April to 30th Sept. 1st January of the following year to 30th June.
1st Oct. to 31st March 1st July to 31st December of the year following
