Earlier, there was manual registration. Now, the ESIC registration is completely online. Following are the steps involved in ESIC Registration:

Step 1: Log in to ESIC Portal

  • An employer needs to get himself registered on the ESIC portal.
  • An employer can register on the ESIC portal by clicking on the ‘Employer Login’ option on the home screen.

Step 2: Confirmation Mail

After submitting the form for sign up to the portal, the employer will receive a confirmation mail sent to the registered mail id and mobile number entered at the time of sign up.

The email will contain the username and password details for registering as an employer and employee under the ESIC scheme.

Step 3: Employer Registration Form-1

  • Next, log in to the ESIC portal by clicking on the ‘Employer Login’ option on the home screen and entering the username and password received in the email. This will redirect to the page having the option of ‘New Employer Registration’.
  • Click on the ‘New Employer Registration’ option.
  • Next, select the ‘Type of Unit’ from the drop-down list and click on the ‘Submit’ button.
  • The ‘Employer Registration – Form 1’ will appear and the employer needs to fill in the details.

Step 4: Payment for Registration

  • After submission of the ESI Registration Form, i.e. Form-1, the ‘Payment of Advance Contribution’ page will open where the employer needs to fill the amount to be paid and select the payment mode.
  • The employer will need to pay the advance contribution for 6 months.

Step 5: Registration Letter

  • On the successful payment of six months advance contribution, the system generated Registration Letter (C-11) is sent to the employer which will contain a 17 digit Registration Number by the ESIC department.

The Registration Letter (C-11) is a valid proof of registration of the employer.

  • Maintaining the attendance register.
  • Maintaining a complete register of wages for workers.
  • Prepare Inspection book.
  • Monthly return and challan within 15th of the succeeding month.
