  • The Employees’ State Insurance Act of 1948 was passed by the government as a social insurance-based integrated need. ESIC stands for Employee State Insurance Corporation. It is an independent organization set up by India’s Ministry of Labor and Employment to run and control Employee State Insurance. Employee State Insurance is a self-financing social security programme that was started for the benefit of Indian workers. It gives them access to medical care, money, and other benefits from their employers.

  • This plan was made for workers from India. The employer gives the workers a wide range of health care, financial, and other benefits. Any factory or company that is open year-round and has more than 10 (or 20 in some states) employees with a maximum salary of Rs. 21,000/- has to register with the ESIC.

Benefits for Mothers

Maternity benefits are given for three months after a baby is born or a woman gives birth. If a doctor says so, the benefit can be extended for another month at the rate of the woman’s full wage, as long as she worked for at least 70 days in the year before.

Medical Benefit

All people who are signed up for ESI and their family members get full medical care as soon as they start working in a job that is covered by ESI. There is no limit on how much an Insured Person or a member of his family can spend on health care. Medical care is also given to insured people who are retired or permanently disabled, as long as they pay an annual premium of Rs.120/-.

Sickness Benefit

Sickness benefits are paid to insured workers in the form of cash at a rate of 70% of their wages for up to 91 days per year when they are sick and have a doctor’s note. For a worker to be eligible for sickness benefits, he or she must have paid into the system for 78 days over a period of 6 months. Workers with cancer or diseases that last for a long time can get 80 percent of their wages in sickness benefits for up to two years. Also, people who are insured and get sterilised for 7 days or 14 days, depending on whether they are a man or a woman, are paid a higher sick benefit equal to their full wage.

Disablement Benefit

Even if you haven’t paid any contributions, if you start a job that is covered by insurance, you will get 90 percent of your pay for as long as you are temporarily disabled. Permanent disability benefit is paid out as a monthly payment of 90% of the person’s salary if they are permanently disabled. This is based on how much they can no longer work, as determined by a Medical Board.

Dependant Benefit

Dependent benefit is a monthly payment equal to 90% of the insured person’s wage. It is given to the person’s dependents when the insured person dies because of an injury or hazard at work.

Funeral Expenses

From the first day of work that qualifies for insurance, Rs.10,000 is paid to the person’s dependents or to the person who performs the last rites.

Allowance for Unemployment

Under the Rajiv Gandhi Shramik Kalyan Yojana, a person who has been insured for three or more years and then loses their job due to the closing of a factory or business, being laid off, or being permanently unable to work is given an unemployment allowance.
