ESIC Form 37: Why It is Important in ESI

ESIC form 37 is known as the certificate of reemployment or continuing employment. ESIC form 37 is a declaration by the employer for continuity of an employee under an employee state insurance scheme 1948.

In simple words whenever an employee joins in a new job where he needs to fill this ESIC form 37 to continue his previous ESIC IP number. If the employee doesn’t submit this ESIC form 37 then the new employer may create another IP number for that employee, it leads to duplication of ESIC IP numbers.

So in order to avoid ESIC IP numbers duplication,  employers collect ESIC form 37 from the employees and they will submit it to their ESIC local branch office.

Purpose of ESIC Form 37

Only One ESI number will be allocated to ESIC members in their career. When an insured person has Two IP numbers then after some time their new IP number will become duplicate and again old IP number will visible in ESIC portal automatically, which your employer can observe during monthly payments.

Further, it leads to duplication of new ESI number and all the contributions which they have made to the new ESIC number will become useless or else they have to transfer ESIC contributions of new ESIC number to their old ESIC number.

So in order to overcome all those problems just give your previous ESI number to your new employer and submit ESIC form 37 to the new employer.
