Current ESI norms mandate the monthly payment of the ESI under separate challans for each state and city. Since this was creating challenges for retailers, RAI approached the Honorable Labour Secretary, Chairman Standing Committee - ESI Corporation, seeking his intervention in this matter through a representation.
RAI has requested that RAI members be allowed to pay ESI contributions under one challan. This will save considerable time of all the stakeholders (employers/ESI/Bank) and will also dispense with the need to maintain large number of challans, every month.
Please find the representation attached here.
