2. Further ESIC has its own procedure of determining the eligibility of different benefits including maternity benefit. The claimant has to present himself/herself alongwith his/her Pehchan Card before the ESIS doctor to which he/she is attached and get himself/herself examined. ESIS doctor issues medical certificate periodically on each visit and on the basis of such medical certifications, benefits as due are calculated and paid by the ESIC Branch Office Manager directly to the insured persons.
3. Therefore, it will be more better if to advise the concerned insured woman to contact her ESIS dispensary as well as ESIC Branch Office to which she is attached. The duty of principal employer is only to ensure that the compliance has been made in respect of said insured woman and above all most important she has been provided PEHCHAN CARD by the principal employer after collecting the same from appropriate Branch Office.
