ESI Insured Person (IP) Registration in ESI Online Portal
Before October 2019, there was no restriction in generation and allotting IP numbers. But Employee State Insurance (ESI) has made an amendment through an official notification in November 2019, wherein all employers were directed to register employees on real time basis within 10 days from the date of joining in the establishment. If the date of appointment is beyond 10 days of online registration, online systems will not allow the employer to register employee’s enrolment on real time basis.
Many employers faced issues during this process. The issue was examined by ESIC and a solution was provided with attached conditions.
As per the new reforms, the system will allow registration of employees if the date of appointment is more than 10 days with conditions, a “Pop-up message” will be displayed during the online registration of employees which the employer has to either accept or reject. If an employer accepts the Pop-up message, Insurance numbers will be allotted to the employees and a show cause notice will be issued to the employer; where by the Employer has to reply/submit relevant records within 15 days to justify the delay. In other cases if the employer rejects the Pop-up message, the system will redirect to ‘change the date of appointment’.
