ESI reports

Are we required to file ESI half yearly and annual reports and if yes what are the due dates.


To file ESI returns online, the employer must follow the below-mentioned procedure:

– Login using the credentials, there is a list of actions that are available. For instance, modify employee details, report an accident and so on.

– To file the return, the employer must first verify if all the employee details are up to date and then file the return.

– The employer must then fill the bank details and submit them to file the returns.

– After that, the employer can go to the ‘List of Actions’ and ‘Generate Challan’.

– The challan must be downloaded and documented for future reference and inspections.

The website also offers various actions that the employer can take like modify employee details, report accidents, add new employees, and so on.

The contributions towards employee state insurance is very beneficial to employees, and hence the provisions for nonpayment or delayed payment are very stringent.

The half-yearly return of ESIC for the period April to September is due by 12 November, and October to March is due by 12 May.
