Appreciate for immediate updates. The effective date is not mentioned in this document. However it is normally effective from publication in Gazette.
It is the press release of statement given by the labor minister given in the parliament and not the notification, which would effect the date of activation In this respect notification would be issued by the labor department in the gazette with date o prospective date. Let us wait for the notification.
Good, Notification may be release end of this week. Again good step taken by Govt. Appreciate. Dwarika P Nautiyal
Good to see the update. But any idea, whether the current contribution period ( in fact all companies would have paid for Oct before 21 Nov) gets affected with this. Can ESI make it with effect from Nov month?
NO, it cannot be effective from back date. it may takes effect either from December or January next year.
To the best of my knowledge the enhancement will be effective from April 1, 2017 and not in between
1. Sir, I think, to issue final notification on enhancement of wage ceiling, the appropriate government will take some time even after elapse of a period of 30 days. The said period of 30 days has elapsed on 06/11/2016. The appropriate government will examine the views and objections of the affected parties/persons and thereafter will consider issue of final notification.

2. For example, the intention notification for last enhancement of wage ceiling( present ceiling of Rs.15000/-) was issued as on 27/2/2010 and its final notification was issued on 20/4/2010 and was made applicable w.e.f. 01/05/2010. It will be more appropriate if the interested persons who are contributing in this citeHR may continue in touch with nearest ESIC office to know the developments, if any.

3. In my opinion, it is baseless to suggest that "enhancement will be effective from April 1, 2017 and not in between" as suggested by one of member as above. Earlier enhancement of wage ceiling was w.e.f. 01/05/2010, which was not a base month of relevant contribution period.

Attention Mr HARSH KUMAR MEHTA: I had suggested the application from April 2017. I request you to go through the details, I have given. I had given the reason of justice in my suggestion. Secondly there is no chance to applicable from November, as the salaries & ESI contributions of November have been paid. Hence let's wait for 30th November 2016. If notification is issued till 30th November, It may be applicable from December, otherwise maximum chances are from applicability from April 2017.
I am totally agree with Mr. I.M.Anand. The Government will announce the date of implementation in their upcoming Gazette. Till that time we all have to wai "Appreciate"
