ESIC being deducted even after crossing the 15K Limit

Dear Experts,

I have an issue where an employee's salary has crossed the Rs.15,000 level & even then the ESIC is getting deducted which should have not been the case.

Below are the details:

Basic 5,930.00 Special Allowance 6,555.00 Education Allow 200.00 Transport Allowance 800.00 HRA 1,483.00

Uniform Allowance 750

Total : 15718.

In the RT Table it shows the

/112 ESI Basis As 15194.06

/113 ESI Basis Nominal as 14718.

Can you please advise what could be the cause that the ESI is still getting even after the salary has exceed the applicable limit & is there any setting which has to be done.

    Hi Abdul

    There are certain rules for ESIC deduction. The deduction happening in your case seems to be normal and that's how it happens.

    The system checks for six months ESIC contribution period from (April to Sept) and (Oct to March)

    So even if the salary is changed during this period system will continue to deduct.

    for eg.

    if salary is changed in June and it crosses 15000 K still system will deduct ESIC contribution till Sept month. Same if salary is changed in Nov month system will still deduct the ESIC till March.

    Check the ESIC deduction rules.

      Hi Abdul,

      If the salary is changed in April. ESIC contribution will be deducted till contribution period.

      below is deduction rule for ESIC.. (source internet)

      ESI contribution stops when the employee's gross income crosses Rs. 15000/-.

      • This stoppage of ESI cannot happen in any month. The changeover from ESI-deduction to no-ESI-deduction can happen only in 3rd (March) or 9th (September) month only. i.e. even if an employee's salary crosses, 15000 in July, he will continue to have ESI deduction until August.
      • In the september payroll, the employee's ESI deduction will be zero (as he has crossed Rs. 15000/-)
      • The comparision of income is done with Full Income and the calculation of ESI is done on the actual payout (income).
