Hi @Swati

In simple ESI means the following checklist that Bharath has shared.

  1. Check your state is there an ESI eligibility (All States in India except for Nagaland, Manipur, Sikkim, Arunachal Pradesh, and Mizoram and Applicable to Delhi, Chandigarh, and Puducherry)
  2. Check your employees count (Applicable to non-seasonal factories employing 10 or more persons.)
  3. Type of establishment you have (The scheme has been extended to shops, hotels, restaurants, cinemas (including preview theatres), road-motor transport undertakings, and newspaper establishments employing 20 or more persons.)*
  4. Wage limit of employees ( The existing wage limit for coverage under the Act is Rs. 21,000/- per month ( w.e.f. 01.01.2017))

If you run through 04 items - things will get more clear.
