THE BASIC OBJECTIVE IS TO OFFER SOCIAL INSURANCE TO WORKERS IN RESPECT OF THREE CONTIGENCIES 1. SICKNESS, 2. EMPLOYMENT INJURY AND 3. CHILD BIRTH. THE MAIN FEATURS OF THE ACT ARE AS FOLLOWS : COVERAGE : THE ACT APPLIES TO ALL FACTORIES, OTHER THAN SEASONAL FACTRORIES, RUN WITH POWER AND EMPLOYING 20 OR MORE EMPLOYEES. IT COVERS ALL TYPES OF WORKER – MANUAL, SUPERVISORY OR ADMINISTRATIVE WHOSE REMUNERATION IN AGGREGATE DOES NOT EXCEED Rs.3000 PER MONTH. ADMINISTRATION : THE ADMINISTRATION OF THE ACT, HAS BEEN GIVEN TO THE EMPLOYEES’ STATE INSURANCE CORPORATION (ESIC). IT IS AN AUTONOMOUS BODY SET UP BY AN ACT OF THE CENTRAL GOVERNMENT. THE ESIC BOARD HAS REPRESENTATIVES FROM STATE GOVERNMENT, EMPLOYERS, EMPLOYEES, MEDICAL PROFESSION AND PARLIAMENT. FUNDS : THE ESIC SCHEME IS A COMPULSORY AND CONTRIBUTORY HEALTH INSURANCE SCHEME. UNDER THE SCHEME, THE EMPLOYER CONTRIBUTE 4.75% OF WAGES AND THE EMPLOYEE CONTRIBUTES 1.75% OF HIS OWN WAGES.

      • SUMMARY
      • FUNERAL BENEFITS : WHEN AN INSURED PERSON DIES, THE ELDEST MEMBER OF THE FAMILY OR OTHER DEPENDENT OR FRIENDS AS THE CASE MAY BE, IS ENTITLED TO RECEIVE Rs.100 TOWARDS FUNERAL EXPENSES. THE AMOUNT SHOULD BE CLAIMED WITH IN THREE MONTHS OF THE DEATH.
      • ASSESSMENT : THE ESI SCHEME HAS BEEN CRITICIZED ON THE FOLLOWING GROUNDS :
      • EVEN WITHIN THE ORGANISED SECTOR, THE COVERAGE OF THE SCHEME HAS BEEN SOMEWHAT LOW.
      • THE SCHEME HAS NOT BEEN POPULAR WITH EMPLOYEES AND UNIONS. THE STATE GOVERNMENT , TOO, HAVE NOT SHOWN ENTHUSIASM TO IMPLEMENT THE PROVISIONS OF THE SCHEME SINCERELY. EMPLOYEES HAVE OFTEN COMPLAINED ABOUT THE INADEQUACY OF FACILITIES AND BENEFITS. MOST OF THEM HAD TO SPEND ADDITIONAL AMOUNTS OF MONEY FOR BUYING MEDICINES NOT AVAILABLE IN ESI DISPENSARIES.
      • THERE IS DELAY IN PROVIDING BENEFITS TO INSURED WORKERS. THE PENALTIES FOR ANY DEFAULT IN PAYMENT OF CONTRIBUTION BY THE EMPLOYER ARE QUITE SEVERE (INCLIDING FINE & IMPRISONMENT). HOWEVER, EMPLOYERS ARE RARELY BOOKED FOR VIOLATIONS ON VARIOUS COUNTS.
