Is there any recent update about ESIC regarding submission of Employee Family Photo. One employee told me that now it is not compulsory to submit family photo at ESIC office. Only Aadhar no of Employee and Family Members will do.
Kindly give me proper information.

Please link Aadhaar Numbers of Employee & Family Members in ESIC Portal.While taking Treatment, ESIC TIC & Photo Copy of Aadhaar to be carried for identification purpose
Thanks for your response. But is it compulsory to submit family photo
Dear Mandyji, to whom you will submit Family Photo? are you an Employee or Employer?
I am talking about employee who wants to take esic medical benefit but he has still not submitted family photo at esic office.
Submission of Family Photo to ESIC is not required, consequent to linking of Aadhaar Numbers of insured Person & Family Members in ESI portal
29. How are the employees registered under the Scheme?
At the time of joining the insurable employment, an employee is required to provide his and his family details to the employer along with a family photo so that the employer can register the employee on-line. This exercise of registering an employee is a one time exercise for entire insurable employment of an employee. The insurance number generated On-line on the first occasion of registration is to be used throughout his life time irrespective of change of employment including change of place.
30. What is an identity card?
After On-line registration of an employee under the scheme, the employer can take a print out of the Temporary Identity Certificate (TIC). On linking of Aadhar with IP insurance number, TIC will automatically be converted into a Permanent Identity Card (PIC). With PIC the IP and his family members can avail benefits under the ESI Scheme, without any hitch. If Aadhar number of IP/family is not available, then employer will ensure to affix the IP photo along with the family members on TIC duly authenticated with his stamp & signature. This TIC will be valid for a period of one month only.
As soon as possible but not later than a month, the insured person along with his entire family should link their Aadhar number using the web site ESIC for availing medical benefit at dispensary/ hospital and availing cash benefits at the ESI branch Office. Any changes in his residence/ dispensary/ employment can be carried out by the employer in the ESIC Portal as and when arises.
I got this information from esic website FAQ.
So any employee can directly go to ESIC Office and register under Doctor. So family photo is not necessary. Correct me if I am wrong.
