    An Overview on Online ESIC Registration

    Employee State Insurance, or ESI, is a plan launched by the Government of India to provide workers with medical, monetary, and other benefits. Employee State Insurance Corporation, an autonomous entity under the supervision of the Ministry of Labor and Employment, manages ESI. The standard criteria for ESI (Employees' State Insurance) registration is that you must have 10 or more employees. However, in other states ESI is only available if there are more than 20 employees.

    Zolvit experts can ensure a thorough processing of your ESI application at every stage starting from submission and ending with all follow-ups. We ensure our affiliates take care of all the hassle involved in the ESI registration process on your behalf.
