Share of State Governments under ESIC act

As per decision of Employees State Insurance (ESI) Corporation, expenditure on medical care under ESI Scheme is shared between ESI Corporation and the State Government in the ratio of 7:1 within a prescribed ceiling which is revised from time to time. Medical expenditure beyond this ceiling is to be borne by the concerned State Government.

Government of National Capital Territory of Delhi is yet to provide their share of Rs.1127.87 crore (as on 31.03.2014). Out of this, an amount of Rs. 114.71 crore is due as 1/8th share payable within the ceiling and rest Rs. 1013.16 crore is due for payment outside the ceiling.

Steps are being taken to recover the pending dues. Matter is being persuaded at highest level including reminders at the level of Hon’ble Minister and DG, ESIC.

This information given by Shri Bandaru Dattatreya, the Minister of State (IC) for Labour and Employment, in reply to a question in Lok Sabha today.
