ESI announces the coverage for casual and contractual employees of municipal bodies

The Ministry of Labour and Employment has announced the decision to extend ESI coverage to all casual and contractual workers working the municipal bodies. The coverage shall be extended to those casual and contractual employees, agencies, establishments which are within the implemented areas already notified under the ESI Act.

The casual and contractual workers not being regular employees of the Municipal Corporations/Municipal councils, they remain out of the social security net making them a vulnerable lot. To address this issue, the Ministry of Labour and Employment has directed the ESIC to take this matter with the States, and UTs for the issue of notification in their respective jurisdiction.

The Central Government has issued an intention notification dated 07 June 2021 for NCT Delhi to cover the casual and contractual employees working with Municipal Corporations/Council in NCT Delhi.

This shall contribute to social upliftment of this segment of workforce and their families.

Once notifications for ESI coverage are issued by the respective States/ UTs, the casual and contractual workers working with municipal bodies will be able to avail the full gamut of benefits available under the ESI Act such as sickness benefit, maternity benefit, disablement benefit, dependent’s benefit, funeral expenses etc. In addition, and importantly, these workers will be eligible to avail medical services through vast network of ESI facilities i.e., 160 hospitals and over 1500 dispensaries all over the country.
