RECRUITMENT ESIC – The Parliament’s enactment of the Employees’ State Insurance Act, 1948(ESI Act), was the first significant social security law for workers in independent India. It was a time when the industry was still in its infancy and the country was heavily dependent upon an assortment of imported products from developed or fast developing countries. Manpower deployment in manufacturing processes was restricted to a few selected industries such as jute, textile, chemicals, etc.The law on establishing and improving a foolish multi-dimensional social security program, when the country’s economy was in a very young state, was obviously a remarkable step towards a workface’s socio-economic development, though restricted in number and geographic distribution. Notwithstanding this, India took the lead in providing the working class with structured social security through legislative provisions.

The 1948 ESI Act contains such health-related eventualities to which workers are usually exposed, such as illness, maternity, temporary or permanent disability, occupational disease or death due to job injury, resulting in wage loss or complete or partial earning power. The social security provisions embodied in the Act to counterbalance or prevent the resultant physical or financial suffering in these contingencies are thus intended to preserve human dignity in times of crisis by protecting against poverty, hardship and social deterioration while allowing society to retain and sustain a socially viable and efficient workforce.

The scheme was inaugurated in Kanpur by then-Prime Minister Pandit Jawahar Lal Nehru on 24 February 1952 (ESIC Day). The venue was Brijender Swarup Park, Kanpur and Panditji addressed a 70,000-strong gathering in Hindi in the presence of Pt. Gobind Ballabh Pant, Chief Minister Uttar Pradesh; Babu Jagjivan Ram, Minister of Union Labor; Raj Kumari Amrit Kaur, Minister of Union Health; Sh. Chandrabhan Gupt, Minister of Union Food and Dr. C.L.Katial, ESIC’s First Director General.

It is important to note here that it had started in 1944, when the Govt, as the first social security scheme. The first paper on social insurance was the “Study on Health Insurance” presented to the Tripartite Labor Conference, led by the distinguished scholar and visionary Prof. B.P.Adarkar. The Study has been applauded as a worthy document and predecessor to the Indian social security system, and none other than Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel has acknowledged Prof. Adarkar as “Chhota Beveridge.” Sir, as we all remember, William Beveridge was one of the prominent social security priests. The study was approved, and it continued to be closely affiliated with Prof. Adarkar until 1946. He strongly supported the control of the Scheme by an ILO specialist on his disassociation. Dr. C.L.Katial, an eminent Indian doctor from London, took over as ESIC’s 1st General Director in 1948 and he handled the fledgling Scheme’s affairs until 1953.

After the red letter day in India’s social security annals on February 24th, there has been no look back. A lighted lamp which is the ESIC emblem truly symbolizes the Scheme’s spirit, lighting lives of countless working-class families by replacing desperation with hope and offering assistance in times of physical and financial distress. 

ESIC has evolved from strength to strength during the 68 years of its life and the Company owes it, above all, to the devotion, dedication and perseverance of persons such as Prof. Adarkar and Dr. Katial.
