Any employer who becomes coverable under the Act can register online (www.esic.in) and get registered. While registering online, the employer has to give correct and complete details. (The employer would be contacted through the email for communicating the access credentials to the employer portal, reset of password, etc.); once registered, the employer will be allotted a 17 digit employer code.
Except for employers who supply manpower, all the employers can proceed with the compliance under the Act, without even visiting the ESI offices, as all activities, like registering the employees employed, filing contribution, generating challan for remitting contribution, filing periodical returns, etc. can be done online.
