There are so many cases where insured persons of employee state insurance schemes don’t know their ESI numbers. And they are asking is there any way to do ESI number search by name like in PAN card. But unfortunately, we can’t able to get forgotten ESIC number online using name or date of birth of insured persons. If you want to know why it is not possible to do ESI number search by name and date of birth then you can read this.
Why It Is Not Possible To Do ESI Number Search By Name
There is no exact reason for this the employee state insurance corporation has not launched any online system to get forgotten ESI number of insured person. So it is the responsibility of insured persons to keep their ESI numbers with them through out their life time. If they can’t keep their ESI numbers with them or whenever employees change their ESI numbers regularly when they join in the new job then it leads to duplication of ESIC IP numbers and it makes insured persons ineligible for ESI benefits.
What To Do When An Insured Person Forgets His Or Her ESI Number
Hence it is not possible to do ESI number search by name so whenever an insured person forgets his or her ESI Ip number then they have to visit their employer and they have a complete data base of ESI numbers of their employee. In case insured person changes a job then they have to visit their previous employer. We can also find our ESI IP numbers on ESI Pehchan cards and in some companies the ESI Ip number of employees will be printed on pay slips. So before going to meet the employer, it is better to check Pehchan card and pay slips.
Now employee state insurance corporation has made it mandatory to link Aadhar number of insured persons with their IP number. Once we know our ESI IP number then we can link our ESI number with Aadhar number in ESI Pehchan cards or they can also request their employer to link their Aadhar number with IP number. Employer will do this in their ESIC employer portal.
