Generally, it is the responsibility of insured persons to keep their ESI numbers with them throughout their lifetime. 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.

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 the Pehchan card and payslips.
