What is ESIC?

ESI stands for Employee State Insurance. It is a self-financing social security scheme managed by the government of India through an autonomous authority – Employee State Insurance Corporation that falls under the jurisdiction of the Ministry of Labour and Employment. It aims to provide medical & monetary benefits to Indian employees and their dependents who are employed at an establishment or factory. The scheme is targeted to provide benefits to low income level employees of the Indian industry.

The ESIC Act of 1948, mandates shops, movie theatres, hotels, restaurants, newspaper establishment, educational institution, motor transport establishment, etc. to compulsorily register under the ESIC Act if they have more than 10 employees earning less than Rs. 21,000 per month. In some states, the employee limit is 20.

A total of 4% of the gross salary of an employee has to be deposited in the ESI account.

Out of 4%, 3.25% is contributed by the employer and 0.75% is contributed by the employee.

Employers have to strictly deposit the money deducted from the employee’s wages in the ESI account of the employee. Non-payment or frauds by employers are liable to imprisonment up to 3 years and a fine of up to Rs 5,000. ESI is for the benefit and welfare of the employees and it is the responsibility of the employer to ensure that this purpose is fulfilled.
