We are India\'s largest salt manufacturers and we have operations from different parts of the country. I am working as Human Resource Executive in a Salt refinery. As our project is in machilipatnam (Andhra Pradesh) which has no ESI hospital facility. So we are not providing ESI benefits to the employees. Instead of this what we need to pay for staff welfare.
