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"
