Hello All, I am a shopkeeper dealing in industrial spares from the last 15 years and is having an employee strength of 5 only.
I wanted to know two things -
a) Can I go for ESI voluntary registration as all my employees desired as such, and
b) If it is possible to take for ESIC voluntary registration then do I have to also register for PF, I mean is it mandatory that once you register for ESI/EPF then you have to take registration in other also??
Please help.

Dear Sidharth-Kapoor1,
In ESIS there is no provision for voluntary registration. However, in PF you have it.
You can not have ESIS registration with 5 staff but you can have PF registration with 5 staff on voluntary basis with consent of you and majority of your employees.

Thanks Akhil. Just one more thing out of curiosity if i have 10 employees and i mandatorily register for ESIC (10 employees in Odisha state), then should i have to take PF registration also although my employee strength is below 20, I mean is it mandatory then?

Dear Sidharth-Kapoor1,
You need not to have PF. It is not mandatory to you. But you can go voluntarily as I told earlier.
