Employees State Insurance- wage limit increased


The ESI Corporation, India  approved to enhance wage ceiling from Rs 10,000 per month to Rs15,000 per month for coverage of employees under the ESI Scheme in its 149th meeting held on Friday under the chairmanship of Union Minister of Labour and Employment Mallikarjun Kharge w.e.f. 1.4.2010.

Keeping in view the increase in cost of living index and recommendations of the Parliamentary Standing Committee on Labour, the corporation increased the wage ceiling limit for coverage of the employees under the ESI Scheme. This will help the corporation to provide social security net to more and more employees of the organised sector.

It has been decided in the 149th meetings and notification from corporation is awaited. Notification will be issued in this month and same will be effected from 1st april 2010.
