I have a private security agency. I have been given a contract for security guard in an oil company in Usar near Alibag, Raigad, Maharashtra.
The plant is located about 15 km from Alibag which is the dist HQ.
Maharashtra has made ESIC applicable in the said district. However, the closest facility available is at Alibag, 15 kms from the plant if we include the govt hospital. If not, the ESIC hospital is about 100 kms away at Panvel.
Is there a provision based on distance from the closest ESIC facility that permits us to opt for Workmen Compensation Policy instead of ESIC. 12th November 2018 From India, Pune
