Dear Seniors, Esi is applicable for IT industry? Already we have insurance for our employee, but still ESI is applicable?
From India, Tiruppur
Yes it is applicable even to the software industry so long as the other criteria of having more than 10 employees is fulfilled. Once registered under ESI it will be applicable even if the strength goes down the required mark. If you have insurance which is much better than the ESI and applicable to all the employees you may have to prove the same to the authorities to take exemption. You need to first register your company with the ESI before going for any exemption which is an exception rather than a rule.
Thanks and Regards

Dear Laitha
ESI is applicable to all factories, shops and establishment engaging 10 or more employees (all types of employment) on any given day in preceding 12 months, the ESI Act will be applicable. However it is also important to find whether the geographical area where your establishment is situated has been notified by ESIC as implemented area or not. Implemented are is the area where ESIC has made available dispensary/Hospital and other infrastructure to extend ESI benefits to prospective members.
Please find here attached a list of such areas in state of Tamilnadu.
