What is ESI?
The Employees’ State Insurance Act, 1948 was introduced as much needed social insurance scheme to protect the interest of workers in emergent cases like sickness, maternity, temporary or permanent physical disablement, death while on duty, or any injury that would result in loss of earning capacity of the worker. The Act guarantees affordable medical care to workers and their immediate dependent family members.
The ESI Scheme was first implemented at Kanpur and Delhi on 24th February 1952.
