Kindly refer to Letter No.X-11/14/03/2017-P&D dated 14.10.2020 on the above-cited subject wherein the district-wise Phased Programme of Implementation for the year 2020-21 was conveyed as per Vision – 2022. The targets for 2020-21 could not be achieved due to the non-completion of medical arrangements during the COVID pandemic. Now, a new consolidated target for 2021-22 is enclosed which includes the pending districts not notified during the year 2020-21 in the target of notification.
It is also to inform you that the Code on Social security, 2020 (Act 36 of 2020) has been notified. The effective date of implementation is also expected to be notified shortly. The code subsumes the ESI Act, 1948 along with eight other central enactments in the field of Social Security. Once notified, the entire area of the country shall be implemented for the purposes of the ESI Scheme. Therefore, it is imperative to make medical arrangements in all areas within this financial year itself.
The targets for the year 2021-22 are enclosed as Annexure -A with the request that necessary steps may be taken on priority for implementing the scheme in the districts shown in the Annexure.
In view of the above, the State Govt. is requested to take steps to complete the medical arrangement in the districts for delivery of medical care to the Insured Persons and their family members so as to enable ESIC to take further action for the issue of notification well in time for implementing the Scheme
|Partially to the entire area of the district pending for notification – 176|
