Hope from the above words will have been clarified what is esi
There is some contribution ratio between employer and employee.
In this scheme, the employer needs to contribute and the amount of 4% of the total monthly salary of an employee and employee needs to contribute 0.75% of the amount
How to Calculate ESI:
Let’s understand the esi calculation with the example:
Gross Salary of an employee is INR 10,000,
Employee’s share of contribution would be: 0.75/100 * 10,000 = INR 75
And, the Employer’s share of contribution would be: 3.25/100 * 10,000 = 325
Hence, the total ESI contribution would be: 75 + 325 = INR 500
