Welcome to ESIC

The promulgation of Employees’ State Insurance Act. by the Parliament, in 1948 was the first major legislation on comprehensive Social Security for workers in independent India. The Act envisages social protection of workers deployed in the organized sector in conceivable contingencies, such as sickness, maternity and death or disablement due to employment injury and occupational disease. Based on the principal of “Pooling Of Risks And Resources”, the unique, multidimensional health insurance scheme guarantees a fair deal to the covered members by providing full medical facilities to the beneficiaries, besides, adequate cash compensation to insured persons for loss of wages or earning capacity in times of physical distress arising out of sickness or employment injury (including commuting accidents) or unemployment.


The comprehensive and multi-pronged social security programme is administered by an apex corporate body called the Employees' State Insurance Corporation. It comprises members representing vital interest groups, including, employees, employers, the Central and State Government, representatives of Parliament and medical profession. The Corporation is headed by the Union Minister of Labour, as its Chairman, whereas the Director General, appointed by the Central Government functions as its Chief Executive Officer. The broad based corporate body is, primarily, responsible for coordinated policy planning and decision making for growth, development and efficacy of the scheme.A Standing Committee, constituted from among the members of the Corporation, acts as an Executive Body.The Medical Benefit Council, constituted by the Central Government, is yet another Statutory Body that advises the Corporation on matters related to effective delivery of medical services to the BeneficiaryPopulation.

 The Corporation, with its Central Headquarters at New Delhi, operates through a network of 61 Regional, Sub- Regional and Divisional Offices located in various States.

Dear Stakeholders,

             ESI Scheme was first implemented in Goa in 1975 and Goa has become a full fledged Region of ESIC on 03/10/1988 headed by a Regional Director. Thereafter, ESlC, Goa has improved the Scheme activities and infrastructural facilities in a steady manner by reaching out to our Stakeholders.

            Today ESI Scheme, Goa caters to about 1.6 lakhs of Insured Persons covering approximately 6.4 lakhs of ESI beneficiaries which is approximately 40% of the population of Goa and providing comprehensive Social Security protection to Insured Persons. ESI Scheme is now implemented in the entire territory of Goa State which is a unique credit only to Goa and recently two more ESI Dispensaries were opened at Verna and Honda. As the part of ESIC's national policy to improve the infrastructural facilities, ESI, Goa also has improved the facilities of ESI institutions. ESl Hospital, Margao has undergone a major renovation and up gradation and full fledged operation of the Hospital with all latest medical facilities is expected shortly. Similarly, the computerization, process launched by ESIC with the help of M/s. Wipro is successfully implemented in Goa. Govt of Goa who is administering the medical benefits has fully adopted the online services of Dhanwantri module of IT roll out. Enrollment of Pehchan cards (Smart Cards) for majority of Insured Persons is also completed in Goa which enables the Insured Persons to take ESI services anywhere, anytime.

        I would like to congratulate all the Stakeholders of ESI Scheme, like, Employers, Employees, Industrial associations, Trade Unions for actively co-operating with ESI management for the improvement of ESI Scheme in Goa. We have also empanelled leading private hospitals for the cashless secondary/super specialty treatment facilities in Goa and also progressing in the direction of opening one more ESI Hospital in North Goa in future.

         ESI Scheme being a comprehensive Social Security Scheme, touching the lives of lakhs of workers and their family members, we encourage our stakeholders to come forward to communicate any problems/difficulties faced by them in receiving the ESI benefits from any of our ESI institutions. Your keen interest and involvement on ESI Scheme will go a long way in ensuring timely support to our esteemed beneficiaries,

         With my best wishes,

                                                                                                                        Yours sincerely,

                                                                                                                           (CV Joseph)
