per day depending up on the preparation of food/sweet pl let us know whether we have to
collect esi and pf for these peoples.even if they work for ten days a month their monthly
pay crosses 15000 pl reply

Hi Buddy,
The above mentioned persons are not covered under ESI domain.
My Justification: 1.ESI not applicable for seasonal factory/workers
2.An insured person has to contribute certain no days in a contribution period in order to enjoy benefits under ESI in benefit period, If these workers work only 10 days in a month than they cannot contribute towards ESI in contribution period.
Example: An employee as to contribute 78days in a contribution period to enjoy sickness benefits in benefits period.
Casual employees as well as daily wagers covered under the PF.
If there is any correction, I welcome members in the forum to correct me.
With Regards

Good Morning...
Tku v m for your immediate reply and I noted the contents
Pl clarify the following also:
let us keep aside the working days/contribution
period, eligibility etc.,
a casual labour working for ten days
for eg. we are paying 1000 per day
he is working for ten days in a month
so his salary p m arrives at 25000 approximately
he is drawing more than 15000
in this case whether we have to collect esi and pf?
