The Employees’ State Insurance Corporation (ESIC) on April 13, 2020, has issued a Notice in order to extend the last date to file the contribution for the month of February due to the outbreak of COVID-19 pandemic and lockdown in the country.

Therefore, Regulation 26 related to “Return of contributions to be sent to appropriate office” and Regulation 31 related to “Time for payment of contribution” of the Employees’ State Insurance (General) Regulations, 1950 have been relaxed, stating that the time limit for payment of contribution shall be 75 days instead of 45 days for the contribution for the month of February 2020 only.

Thus, the ESI contribution for the month of February can be filed and paid up to May 15, 2020 instead of April 15, 2020.
