ESI registration

What is ESI registration?

The Employee State Insurance (ESI) is overseen and regulated by the Employee State Insurance Corporation, an autonomous body under the Ministry of Labour and Employment, Government of India. This scheme, designed for Indian employees, offers monetary, medical, and other benefits from the employer to the employee.
Currently, any factor, employment, or establishment that employs over 10 individuals with a minimum salary of Rs. 21,000 is required to mandatorily register itself with the ESIC.


Who is eligible to obtain ESI registration in India?

Eligibility for ESI registration requires having more than 10 workers, although in certain regions, registration is possible only if there are more than 20 employees. Additionally, there are other criteria that need to be satisfied for obtaining ESI registration.

Documents required for obtaining ESI registration

For obtaining ESI registration in India here is the list of documents that is to be submitted by the employer along with the application:

The monthly pay sheet is also required for computing the contribution amount for each employee for ESI filings.

Definition of Factory under ESI Act:

A factory is defined under the ESI Act as any premises where ten or more persons are employed or were employed for wages on any day of the preceding twelve months, and, in any part of which, a manufacturing process is being carried out with or without the aid of power. If several departments are within the same premises and engaged in work related to or incidental to a manufacturing process, they are considered separate from the factory.

This definition includes seasonal factories working for not more than seven months a year, engaged in processes related to blending, packing, or repacking of tea or coffee, or other manufacturing processes as notified by the central government. However, mines and railway running sheds are excluded from this definition.

The critical factor for considering a premise as a factory is if there are ten or more persons working, regardless of whether they are paid wages. It’s important to note that not all individuals working in the factory need to be employed in the manufacturing process.

Definition of Establishment under ESI Act:

Under the ESI Act, an establishment is defined as an organized body of men or women or an institution, not confined to a specific premise or place. If an establishment employs 20 or more persons, it is required to obtain ESI registration in India. Therefore, establishments employing fewer than 20 employees, drawing less than Rs. 21,000 a month as wages, are exempt from ESI registration.

Shops are also required to be registered under the ESI Act. The Supreme Court has defined a shop as any premises where economic activities leading to sale or purchase are carried out. Therefore, service providers such as advertisement agencies, liaison offices, consultancy services, and real estate services are obligated to get ESI registration in India.

Educational institutions, hospitals, dispensaries, offices of auditors and solicitors, chartered accountants, and private commercial hospitals are excluded from this definition.
