Understanding ESIC Forms: A Comprehensive Overview

1. ESIC Form 1 – Declaration Form

– Act: Employees’ State Insurance Act, 1948

Staying compliant with Employee State Insurance (ESI)

A statutory benefit offered by the government to provide financial security. For each pay check, the employer contributes 3.25% and the employee contributes 0.75%. ESI is mandatory for employers who have employees working in a non-seasonal factory with more than 10 employees, but only for employees who are earning less than ₹21,000 per pay check.

While contributing a certain percentage every month towards a registered ESI number seems straightforward, because ESI is applied only to employees who earn less than ₹21000, you should always check the appraisal cycle to confirm that the employee has not surpassed ₹21,000. Once the employee earns more than ₹21,000, the contributions towards ESI should continue till the end of the contribution cycle. Each contribution cycle lasts six months, from April-September or October-March.

For example, if an employee is earning ₹20,000 in the month of June, and starts to earn ₹22,000 from July post-appraisal, the deduction towards ESI should still continue until September. Starting in October, they need not contribute to ESI.
