Important Steps & Documents Required for ESIC Registration

Employee State Insurance, or ESI, is a program administered by the Employee State Insurance Corporation (ESIC), a legally independent agency housed within the Ministry of Labour and Employment of the Indian government.

The ESI program was launched for Indian employees. According to the ESI Act, the donations made by the business and the employee to the ESI plan provide a wide range of medical, financial, and other advantages to the workers.

ESIC Registration Eligibility

Any factory or establishment that is not seasonal has more than 10 members, and pays a maximum wage of Rs. 21,000/- must enrol with the ESIC within 15 days of the date it becomes applicable.

According to this plan, the employee is only required to pay 0.75% of his monthly wage each month of the year, while the employer is required to give 3.25% of the employee's total monthly compensation. The only employee excused from paying his share is one whose daily wage is below Rs. 176.

1.      Copy of the pan of the company.

2.      Copy of the registration certificate.

3.      Copy of bank statement.

4.      a copy of each license that the business has ever obtained.

5.      A cancelled cheque.

6.      Photocopy of electricity bill.

7.      Copy of pan or voter id of partners.

8.      List all personnel currently employed by the provider or the company.
