Dear All,
1. As per my knowledge, PF, ESIC & Professional Tax - all three salary deductions start from the same month.
However, in my organization, Prof. Tax is being deducted from the joining month whereas PF & ESIC are being deducted after completion of 6 months.
Kindly guide me on the same as per the respective act.
2. Secondly, If any employee's salary is increased in middle of the year and if it crosses ESIC applicability limit then upto which period that particular employee's ESIC contribution shall be deducted from his salary? Will it be deducted till half year return filing? I fill monthly challan online and I dont see any option so that I can remove him name from IP list. I dont have idea on how to remove any existing employee's name from ESIC portal. Please guide me on this.
3. How important it is to fill half yearly challan (Form 5)?
Looking forward for your guidance.
Thanking you in advance.

1) ESIC/EPF is applicable from from very 1st day of employment, if the establishment consider the freshers as trainee or apprentice, then the payment is stipend and in that case the Profession tax is also not applicable.
2) ESIC enrolled has to contribute upto the completion of half year i.e 31 march and 30 sept if they get excluded in average salary ( excluding the OT and casual allowance) then they have to continue upto the prescribed half month and then get excluded fron next half year
5) form 5 is auto generated by ESIC now
