ESI registration

ESI registration refers to the process of registering for the Employee State Insurance scheme, which is a social security and health insurance scheme for employees in India.

ESI registration is mandatory for all businesses that employ more than 10 employees, and the employer is required to register themselves and their employees for the scheme. The ESI scheme provides medical benefits, sickness benefits, disability benefits, and maternity benefits to the employees, and is administered by the Employee State Insurance Corporation (ESIC).

To register for ESI, the employer needs to obtain the Employer’s Registration Certificate from the ESIC by submitting the necessary documents such as the registration application, PAN card, bank statement, employee details, and proof of address. Once the application is approved, the employer is provided with a 17-digit unique identification number called the ESI code, which is used for all ESI-related transactions.

ESI registration is important for employers as it ensures compliance with the law and provides social security benefits to their employees.
