Can anybody tell me what is the minimum employees required for ESI registration ?
The Act extends to the whole of India. It applies to all factories (including Government factories but excluding seasonal factories) employing 10 or more persons and carrying on a manufacturing process with the aid of power or employing 20 or more persons and carrying on a manufacturing process without the aid of power and such other establishments as the Government may specify.
A factory or other establishment to which this Act applies, shall continue to be governed by its provisions even if the number of workers employed therein falls below the specified limit or the manufacturing process therein ceases to be carried on with the aid of power, subsequently..

When tha act sets limit of 10 or 20 employees for ESI registration..it doesn't mean that all 10 or 20 employees are eligible....its just the limit for ESI registration...in the example quoted by u..only 10 employees mentioned by u may be eligible..
Hope it is clear..

What about the eligibility of a trading company? What is the meaning or limit of the term power used in the " employing 10 or more persons and carrying on a manufacturing process with the aid of power or employing 20 or more persons and carrying on a manufacturing process without the aid of power". It is alternate power or the usual power? Comsumption limit in H.P?
