ESI Wage limit to be increased to Rs. 25,000/-

The decision to enhance the pay limit for ESI coverage was taken at ESIC’s 160th meeting held in September this year. And thereafter the Government’s recent decision to raise the pay limit from Rs 15,000/month to Rs 25,000/month but yet to be officially introduced. The decision to increase the coverage without any improvement in service quality has been opposed by a section of trade unions.

ESIC is said to be sitting on a corpus which is in excess of half the contribution of Rs 7070 crore. With an employee having gross salary of Rs 25000 works to a Cost to Company Salary of approximately Rs 28000. This single move shall lead to an additional burden of Rs 1200 for employers for every employee with Gross Salary of Rs 25000 and decrease the net pay of the employee by Rs 450.

If there were improvements in medical facilities and medicine availability, the increase would have been a welcome amendment.

    please proceed the above.we will be benefited.

  2. Respected Forum,
    Before deciding to raise the salary ceiling cap from 15000/- to 25000/-, the Hon’ble Minister and the Central govt. in power should think of the repercussions, i.e. who actually gets benfit and who looses. Fine, on paper it is rosy to say every thing by the Minister. Is he aware of the facts, related to the conditions and services rendered by ESIC Hospitals to the subscribers. Perhaps not! It actually hurts a lot. The related issue is to enhance the ceiling limit for Pension. It all goes to the head of an employer. The employer ,who ever he may be, has to pay from his business earnings.If at all, all the Govt. Rules and Regulations are to be implemented in its True perspective, they will have to pass on the expenses to consumer in the form of better margins. Ultimately, the product cost will go up naturally and it will be a burden on common man. Mind You, there are citizens ranging from 60-65 % of population who has to work on their own to earn their Bread and taking care of family members. It is my experience, it serves “no purpose”, except of few vested interests in the Govt, just to show figures of improvement in parliament.The opportunistic group of this country is making mockery of Democracy and looting the Public in the name of serving the poor. Knowingly, politicians introduce these schemes, only to fool the public in general and loot the Govt. funds.It is better for the Govt. to take a stand on it and initiate strict vigilance in monitoring their employees.

I appeal to all the concerned, first set right the administration of ESIC and punish the culprits. without doing the real work, there is no point in enhancing the salary ceiling. it becomes an additional weapon for the Looters in Department. Every single claim of treatment taken outside the ESIC has to be bribed, even in ESIC also people have to bribe for better treatment. Is this the only option available ? Let me know.

  4. please do proceed…. most of them will be benefited by this

  8. The quality of medical benefit should be excellent, for these increase.

  9. THE REAISING OF CEILING LIMIT CAN BE INCREASED BUT THE HOSPITALITY AT ESI OFFICES, DISPENCERYS & HOSPITALS TO BE MONITORED. THIS HAS TO BE VIEWED SERIOUSLY. EVEN AFTER THAT WE PEOPLE ARE NOT GOING TO ESI SINCE WE HAVE TO GET ONE DAY LEAVE FOR GOING TO ESI AND IF WE GO ALSO THERE IS LOT OF FORMOLITIES SAID BY THE ESI OFFICIALS WHICH COULDN’T COVERED IN TIME. SO PLEASE LOOK INTO THIS AND MAKE THE SCAHME WORTHFUL..

  15. Sir,
    Esic wage enhancing is good but the burden of employer as well as employees’ I suggest that the payment of Contribution charged on Rs. 15000/- and the cash benefit also paid by esic subject to maximum Rs. 15000/- but the coverage of an employee should be increase Rs.15000/- to 25000/- so that the esic net will increase without the financial burden on the employees’ and employer.It is also necessary to pressurise to ESIC for enhance its medical facility upto the mark of a executive employee can take benefit of medical facility without inconvenience.
    Thanks.
