The payment of contribution as due and payable under ESI Act can be paid by the employer in their Head Office, which may be located in any of the implemented areas. The only condition, in my opinion, is that the contribution is to be paid Branch -wise by indicating sub-code and the return of the contributions for the contribution period is to be submitted to the appropriate Branch Office or sub Regional Office etc. of ESIC located in such regions where branch offices of factory/establishment are located. In addition, the insurance numbers of the employees working in the branch offices-wise are also to be obtained from the respective branches itself. This is important so that the employees may get ESI benefits as and when needed.
Now, after introduction of online procedure in ESIC offices, the procedure of such payment of contribution as submission of returns etc. must have become more simplified.
I will suggest to the member, who started this subject to kindly contact the appropriate regional office of ESIC where Head Office is located alongwith sub-code numbers of all branches and discuss the issue.

According to the Statute, you are required to create sub codes for every branch irrespective of the no of employees employed therein and ensure ESI compliance for them. However, in case the branch is located in a Non-Implemented Area, ESI compliance for those employees is not required.
Hope that helps.

I am in agreement with the views expressed by Mr Darshan Balai. You have to obtain to sub codes for all branches. After that you ensure that ESI compliance is done against those employees who are falling under the net of ESI. Needless to state here that it is applicable in respect of employees working in the implemented areas only.
