Dear pooja,
Please note that the ESI limit is not Rs. 7500/- but has been increased to Rs. 10,000/- w.e.f. 1.10.2006.
As per Section 2(22) of ESI Act, Wages means all remuneration paid or payable incash to an employee. This includes HRA & conveyance as well.

Hi! Pooja,
For ESIC you have to consider all the fixed components of your monthly salary. You should not include any variable components.
I believe the ceiling for ESIC has been raised to Rs. 10000/-. Am not too sure on this but you could get the same confirmed.

:)The limit has been enhanced to Rs. 10,000/- p.m. excludes washing allowance if any from the gross. Variable components like OT to be included for payment of ESI deduction but not for the eligilibility clause.

ESI is calculated on gross i.e basic,DA,hra,Conveyance and any other components as part of salary. The cealing 10,000/- and not 7,500/-. employee contribution is 1.75% of the gross and employer contribution is 4.75% of the gross.

ESI will get covered if the number of Employees equals to 10 or more if operating with the aid of power and 20 employees are more ( without power)
We are a software company , for us the limit of 10 will apply of limit of 20 will apply
Pls clarify

As your company is software company, you will get coverage under ESIC if total number of employees in your company is more than or equal to 20. Also the rule of salary limit is applicable.

Thanks for the clarification Anmol
The plain reading of the act says if the number of employees 10 or more and if you are operating with the use of Power, We get covered.
When you say operating with power. we are also using power in the sense that for running the computers and airconditioners and lighting .
What is the right interpertion of phrase ' with the use of power and without the usage power contemplated by the ESI Act
