How to Download My ESIC e Pehchan Card

From 2017 onwards Employee State Insurance Corporation has stopped issuing new Pehchan cards to the ESIC members. Earlier ESIC used to issue 2 magnetic striped Yellow colour ESIC cards to the ESIC members. But at present, ESIC is not issuing ESI cards to the employees. In place of old ESIC cards now ESIC members need to use E Pehchan card, which is also known as a counterfoil.

Employees whose monthly gross salary is below 21000 Rs are eligible for ESIC Pehchan card. Even family members who don’t have any income source and minor children, spouse and parents are also eligible for ESIC benefits. The employer needs to collect all the required information of employee during the joining date of the employee.

      Hi Zikrullah Akthar,
      I think you have lost your ESIC Pehchan card, you can get a duplicate ESIC card by submitting duplicate Pehchan card request letter at your regional ESIC office.

      Hi Gagam Kumar Das,
      You should take a temporary ESIC card from your employer and visit your ESIC office along with your family members for the photograph. Then within in 30days, you will get your Pehchan card from them. In the meanwhile you have to visit your ESIC dispensary with a copy of temporary id card then they will guide you on where to get your teeth treatment.

    Sir
    I am employer and one of my employee is registered under ESIC . I have to issue him ESIC Pehchaan card . So I want to know how to issue that.

    1. Rajesh says

      Hi Bharti,
      You have to give him ESIC temporary ID card (print counter foil)which you can get in ESIC employer portal under employee section. Attest that print counterfoil and tell your employee to visit their ESIC office along with his family members to take a photograph, after 30days he has to collect his ESI pehchan card from ESIC office.

      Hi Mohammed Farhan,
      Maybe any of your other family members have included him in their ESIC card, so please check. Otherwise, you can contact your regional ESIC office to update your father’s details.

      1. Mohammed Farhan says

        Hi Rajesh, i am the only son and this is the first time applying for ESIC and went to branch office they told me to contact Employer and they told me to contact again ESIC branch office, please help!

        1. Rajesh says

          Hi Mohammed Farhan,
          It is the responsibility of your employer to generate ESI number to you. Only for taking ESI Pehchan card you need to visit ESIC office, but before that, you have to take temporary ESIC card from your employer.
