Around 13.37 lakh new members joined the ESIC-run social security scheme in September this year as against 13.42 lakh in the previous month, official data showed on Thursday, giving a perspective on formal sector employment in the country.
The latest data is part of a report released by National Statistical Office (NSO).
Gross new enrolments with Employees’ State Insurance Corporation (ESIC) were 10.76 lakh in April, 8.90 lakh in May, 10.65 lakh in June, 13.40 lakh in July and 13.42 lakh in August this year, the latest data showed.
June, July and August figures show an increase in enrolments after easing of COVID-induced restrictions by states post the second wave of the pandemic that hit the country in mid April this year.
The NSO report showed that gross enrolments of new subscribers with ESIC were 1.15 crore in 2020-21 compared to 1.51 crore in 2019-20 and 1.49 crore in 2018-19.
