Enhancement of wage limit for ESI coverage

May 2, 2010 Leave a comment

The Ministry of Labour and Employment, Government of India, has notified that the wage-limit for coverage of employees under the Employee State Insurance (ESI) scheme will be Rs 15,000 per month effective May 1, 2010, as against Rs 10,000 earlier.

The new rule could bring in more employees under ESI in your organization from May 2010. If your organization is still to come under ESI, check if the number of additional employees that would be eligible for ESI on account of the wage-limit enhancement will require your organization to go for mandatory ESI registration.

In addition, keep in mind to apply the new wage-limit while including employees for ESI calculation from May 2010 payroll onwards.
