If the salary of an employee, covered under the ESI scheme, increases from Rs. 19,000 to Rs. 23,000 from Jan 2020 and after a while meets with an accident that causes death/Permanent disability/temporary disability. Will the employee get the benefits under ESI or get compensation under the Employees Compensation Act. Will the employer be liable to undertake the expenses etc under such circumstances?

Yes, He can,
if you increased his salary from Rs. 19 K to Rs.21 K , from Jan,2020 , you should pay his ESI Contribution till completion of contribution period (i.e March,2020) Hence he will eligible for all benefits under ESI Scheme.

Dear ANNONYMOUS Friend,
In ESIC, there are two contribution period and to this two contribution period there are corresponding two benefit period.
Your employee was in ESI till March 2020. Hope you continued his contribution till March 2020 even there as an increase in salary beyond Rs. 21000/- in the month of January 2020.
You said the employee met with an accident after a while. What do you mean by after a while?
If the accident occurred before March 2020, he is certainly entitled to all benefits under the ESI.
If the accident occurred after April 2020, then the IP is entitled for medical benefit till December 2020. Medical benefit means full medical care in ESI hospital or with panel doctor.

He is entitled to get ESI benefits. If his contribution period ends in March 20, he is entitled to get the benefit upto the corresponding benefit period.
