Respected all,

if contribution is filed electronicaly online, then no return required to be filed
Mr. Virender Singh,
Goto Employer Login in your ESI Portal.
Goto the Link "View RC". Select the required Half Yearly Period and download the report. Take a print out.
Get the authorized signatory with seal in the first page and the last page.
Submit that papers to the local ESI Office with covering letter. Another way is, Goto the Link "Self Certification" in the ESI Portal. Select the Half Yearly Period and upload the Signed Papers (Scanned Copy).
Hope it is helpful..

@Varinder @Sarvananan half yearly return is abolished with introduction of online contribution submission system if you need copy of notification contact over email
Physical RC Return is not mandatory, but "Self Certification" option is not abolished. For reference, please go through the attachment. Also, please check with the ESI Officials.
During Finance Audit, ESI Half Yearly return is helpful.

RC printout is an important factor for finance audit, that's why the section is present on portal to ascertain the six monthly block and rate of compensation payable for sick/accident leaves
regarding the physical submission of H/Y returns enclosed is the official notification which is self explanatory

Even in your attachment, it was mentioning about the non mandatory clause of hardcopy submission of RC. But, it didn't mention about eradication of "Self Certification" which is used to upload the self signed RC. That is why, it is present on the portal.

employers are not required to submit the hard or soft copies of Return of Contributions.
hard or soft copies
self certification submission is also not mandatory, but for safeguard and take the printouts would be helpful to the employer in case of any surprise record check
RC self certification is there, as in absence of this, employer would be in dark about their dues, average wages and contribution period details, as most of employers have stopped Contribution Register maintenance in RC5 (earlier RC6)

I forget to mention in my first reply that in the print out, along with the Authorized signatory, Chattered Accountant Authorization is also required in the return papers.
Once the upload is done through "Self Certification" in the ESI Portal, take the "Screenshot of confirmation window", keep the original hardcopy return safe for future audit and reference.

The need for submitting half year return has been done away with by the Corporation. But it is good idea to obtain print of the same (specially contractors) and check every month entry with corresponding challan. I have seen instances where monies were transferred to SBI but somehow they did not reach ESIC & they issued notice.
