QUERIES
Government is in the process of providing ESIC services to establishments having less than 10 employees and a committee has been formed to widen the scope of the facility.
"Presently, ESIC coverage is given to establishments having 10 or more employees (20 or more in Maharashtra). Now, we are going to give ESIC coverage for establishments having less than 10 workers. "For this, a mechanism has to be developed. We have formed a committee to look into all aspects of it," Labour Minister Bandaru Dattatreya said in a media briefing on ESIC schemes here today.
On pilot basis, the proposal is to start in Delhi and Hyderabad by November 30, 2015.

1. Sir, all such news items appear to be propaganda of the present government. The action of government are contradictory in its nature since on one hand they are restricting the coverage of ESIS to 40 and above employees (Small Factories Bill) and on the other, the government is publishing such like news.
2. In my opinion, nothing will happen.

The finance minister in the last budget has already stated that the government considers ESIC and PF to be having more victims than beneficiaries. So compliance would be made voluntary. I don't think they will implement it for smaller firms
