It started off as a scheme for factory workers but now incorporates all the workforce employed in the organized sector. This ESI scheme is funded and managed by the ESIC according to the rules and regulations accorded in the ESI Act of 1948.

ESIC registration is mandatory for all the firms with a workforce comprising 10 or more employees.

Employer and Employee Login
