If your brother company providing the salary without any third party; in that case the company has to pay the ESI and PF, for that the company has to registered for EPFO and ESIC to get the registration codes.
As of now if the company has minimum employees of 20 they have to get ESI and PF benefits, but if the company has a contract employees, the contractor has to take care of the process.
The EPF and ESI slab for certain employer should be 21,000.
My only advise for your brother is tell him to speak to the company HR or a consultant on this.

This may give clarity to you.
For PF - Any person earning a basic of Rs. 15k or more can be exempted from being a PF subscriber, if he was not a subscriber of PF before. However if the person earns a basic of Rs. 15k or was a subscriber of EPFO before; then PF contributions are mandatory.
For ESI - Any employee earning a gross of 21,000 or below is eligible for ESI deduction and benefits.
If the bpo is not functioning as per the aforesaid rule, you can speak to them and seek reasons why.

Thanks for sharing your feedback. Initially, at the time of joining, my brother did argue with the HR regarding PF contribution must be paid as per law but they were too smart to convince him that they do not follow such process in their branch. There are around 35 chat executives handling online food delivery complaints that are not members of PF and ESI.
I am not sure how they have this policy running legally.
Thanks and Regards,
