An employee whose gross salary is less than or equal to Rs 10,000, then he is eligible for the ESI benefits.
Here the contribution per month by the employer is 4.75% of gross salary
and the contribution by the employee is 1.75% of gross salary.
But when the employee leaves the company, he wil not get any money of what is contributed towards ESI. This is not the case in PF.
