The ESI Scheme is being implemented area-wise in a phased manner. As per
the provisions of ESI Act, the administration of medical care rests with the concerned State Governments. Accordingly, a phased programme for implementing the scheme is formulated every year in consultation with the State Govts., Directors of Medical Services and the Regional Directors of ESI Corporation. As per practice, this year also, proposals for preparation of phased programme for the year 2015-2016 (Revised) and 2016-2017 were called for from all the State Govts.The phased programme has been prepared based on the proposals received from the State Governments and from the Regional Directors.
Arrangements for medical care may be made by setting up of separate
dispensaries or through IMP Clinics. Areas having Jess than 1000 employees have not been included in the phased programme. However, in case the scheme can be implemented in such areas located in the periphery of existing implemented areas by attaching them with existing dispensary, the Corporation would welcome such proposals.
