she will get covered in her own working establishment, and would get excluded from husband’s ESI Card statuary contributions from wages / salary can not be avoided,

In her Husbands Card she is covered as Family member.Whereas, in her Employment she will be covered as Insured Employee.Family member is entitled for availing medical
Benefit.Whereas Insured Person is entitled for all the Benefits provided under the Act as per Eligibility Conditions.

Mr. U.S.Sharma ji/GLIDOR, with reference to your remarks as above, I understand that the limit of Rs.5000/- as income per month in order to entitle as "family member" of an insured person is applicable only in respect of "parents" and not in respect of other family members as defined under ESI Act, 1948 (Section 2(11). Hope you will see Rule 61-A of ESI (Central) Rules, 1950. In case you feel that the legal position is otherwise, I hope, your goodself will intimate so that I may up-date myself accordingly.

If both husband and wife get employed and contribute to ESI, then both will get their names endorsed in family details, However family members are entitled for medical benefit onlly, they can not avail sickness leave, maternity leave or accidental cash wages benefits,

in ESIC rules its nowhere specified that if either of the spouse is covered than another would get exemption, ESIC is statuary contribution for employee and employer both.

if the employee wish to get more clear he or she can visit the RO, express their view, and if can convince the RO. than obtain an exemption certificate for exemption from ESIC, mere a letter to employer does not get the employee entitled for exemption from statuary contributions,

Working parents are also family members, and in card they can be added, but ESIC is based on biometric system, so once added they put the working parents in "inactive members"

if this situation also, if both are working, they can add spouse as family member, but ESIC will make it inactive auto, as aadhaar card of both will get cross verified,

However if either of spouse leaves the service and get non contributory, then the working spouse can request the employer or HR to make the inactive member as active, to avail the "family benefits"
