Hi,

When the wage of an employee exceeds Rs21000 per month, What happens to her Employees State Insurance (ESI) scheme ?
Will she be not not covered and contribution from her wages gets stopped?

1st Oct to 31st March of the year following. 1st July to 31st December.

Once employee gets wages hike and exceed wage cieling limit in between the contribution period but the contribution will continue till end of contribution period ( Apr to Sep & Oct to Mar). However, the employee can avail benefits for next 9 months based on benefit period.
