Clearly, the increase in collections coupled with the increase in new employees being registered with ESIC and November registering the lowest number of employees who stopped paying ESIC contribution is a sign of economic revival, recovery in demand and measures to ease compliance. November 2019 significantly not only saw the second-highest new addition of employees but the highest net addition of employees as per ESIC records in the financial year so far.

Under this act, a specified percentage is meant to be deducted from the employees’ salary and the specified percentage is meant to be contributed by the employer. The deductions and contributions are monthly and are meant to be deposited with the ESI corporation under the central government. This amount is then used to provide free treatment of the employee should they fall unwell. As soon as the employee is registered under the ESI Act, he starts to get free treatment from the ESI hospitals which are run and maintained by the ESI corporation (under the central government) and state governments.

Under the ESI act, if certain tests are not available or done by the ESI hospitals, the ESIC has contracts with several private hospitals and diagnostic centres where the patient can simply show their credentials and avail of the tests. The bills are then settled by the ESIC.
